The Oorang Kennels were without a doubt the best known Airedale kennels in North America in their day, largely due to Walter Lingo and his enthusiastic (and often unusual) promotion of the breed. Over the years, misconceptions about Lingo's breeding system and the dogs that came out of it created controversy. Bryan Cummins' in-depth research reveals the truths behind the Oorang legacy, and one man's dedication to the Airedale breed. The Airedale is the largest and most talented of the two dozen or so breeds that make up the terrier group. A comparatively new breed in comparison with many others such as sight hounds, the Airedale has found a world-wide following among those who appreciate its many qualities. In this book, Cummins sorts out fact from fiction and to puts the history of the Oorang Airedales into perspective.
