Riassunto: An evocative compilation of anecdotes that reflect country life as it was in the first half of the 20th century, when the main power of a farm was still horse power, when a network of branch railway lines still criss-crossed the countryside and before poaching became big business. Taken from the "Tales of the Countryside" series, this is the second collection of interviews and anecdotes garnered from characters like Violet Mould who spent almost the whole of her life travelling England's inland waterways, or George Ranger, a Surrey farrier for over 50 years who never rode a horse. The 21 first-person reminiscences included here have captured the memories of a fast-disappearing breed of country people. They tell of poachers and gamekeepers, huntsmen and horses, farmers and the men and women who lived and worked on the big country estates between the two World Wars.
L'autore: Brian P Martin, John Humphreys, Tom Quinn, Valerie Porter, Jennifer Davies, Euan Corrie, Jean Stone and Louise Brodie have gathered the tales, interviewing people and collecting nostalgic snippets on subjects close to their own hearts.
