Read full description of the books:
Many years and many years ago,when I was a teenager, The Voice of Bugle Ann was on the bookshelves of my parents home. It was originally published in 1935. When I left home to go to college, I took the book with me and through the years it also sat on my own book shelves. Sometime over the last 20 or more years I finally read the book and I do remember being moved emotionally by the book. Somewhere it was finally lost in a move or a cleanup...who knows? So this is a cherished memory book from my younger years, one that inspired me, spoke to me and which I remember with joy. I definitely plan on trying to find a copy and reread the book. As an addendum, I come from a family that hunts (but not fox hunting) and we spend a lot of time in the Canadian forests. My son also raises registered dogs. we have always had a lot of dogs in our family. So it is fairly obvious why this book would have appealed to me.

Read information about the authorBenjamin McKinlay Kantor, was an American journalist, novelist and screenwriter. He wrote more than 30 novels, several set during the American Civil War, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1956 for his 1955 novel Andersonville
Kantor was born in Webster City, Iowa, in 1904. His mother, a journalist, encouraged Kantor to develop his writing style. Kantor started writing seriously as a teen-ager when he worked as a reporter with his mother at the local newspaper in Webster City.
Kantor's first novel was published when he was 24.
During World War II, Kantor reported from London as a war correspondent for a Los Angeles newspaper. After flying on several bombing missions, he asked for and received training to operate the bomber's turret machine guns (this was illegal, as he was not in service).
Nevertheless he was decorated with the Medal of Freedom by Gen. Carl Spaatz, then the U.S. Army Air Corp commander. He also saw combat during the Korean War as a correspondent.
In addition to journalism and novels, Kantor wrote the screenplay for Gun Crazy (aka Deadly Is the Female) (1950), a noted film noir. It was based on his short story by the same name, published February 3, 1940 in a "slick" magazine, The Saturday Evening Post. In 1992, it was revealed that he had allowed his name to be used on a screenplay written by Dalton Trumbo, one of the Hollywood Ten, who had been blacklisted as a result of his refusal to testify before the House Un-American Committee (HUAC) hearings. Kantor passed his payment on to Trumbo to help him survive.
Several of his novels were adapted for films. He established his own publishing house, and published several of his works in the 1930s and 1940s.
Kantor died of a heart attack in 1977, at the age of 73, at his home in Sarasota, Florida.
