Beschreibung

Cloth, 8vo, 192 pp. From the blurb: "In the wake of the success of his first evocative anthology, Brian Martin has tracked down a further distinguished group of country folk who here recall their lives in surprisingly sharp detail. In their own colourful words, we learn of their personal trials and triumphs, from fighting in the trenches during the Great War to receiving the long-service medal from HM The Queen. Along the way these entertaining characters have met the rich and famous and been party to great sporting occasions, but above all they have been fired by a love of the outdoor life. Their observations of nature are second to none, and they share here their remarkable encounters with wildlife. Through record-breaking cold, drought and even hurricanes, they have seen the sun set on many seasons which might have broken lesser men. They also remember family life as it used to be, with few luxuries but a real sense of community in the countryside. Throughout these tales their character and sense of humour never waver. The collection is profusely illustrated with Philip Murphy's superb, specially commissioned colour paintings as well as the keepers' treasured photographs and letters, none of which has been published before. This book will appeal to the social historian, the naturalist and the country lover; most of all, it will delight anyone who enjoys a good yarn." Very Good in Very Good dustwrapper.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This is a second anthology in which a group of countrymen recall their lives, detailing personal trials and triumphs, from fighting in the trenches during the Great War to receiving the long-service medal from The Queen. Along the way, these characters have met the wealthy and famous, and been party to great sporting occasions, but above all they have been fired by a love of the outdoor life. They record their encounters with wildlife, and also family life as it used to be, with few luxuries but a real sense of community in the countryside.
