This summaryof the novel is from Ernest Baker and James Packman,
Four tales of past and present. Slain by the Doones is a little study on the theme of Lorna Doone. Crocker's Hole, a story of the catching of a mighty trout, is quite an epitome of Blackmore's humorous story-telling and loving description of nature, and also of his nervous, racy, meandering prose.
