Product Description

Having lived and worked in and around agriculture in Fife all his life, Andrew Arbuckle has a deep affection for his farming heritage. Keen to record this for both those who remember the old ways of farming as well as future generations, Andrew has gathered information from a variety of sources to present a commentary on Scottish farming life from 1900 to the present day. Andrew's avenues of research included local newspaper archives, press cuttings and minutes from union meetings or local shows. Social history also plays a vital part in the project and interviews with people who have worked in farming in days gone by give the book a vitality and humanity often missing from history books. The book is liberally illustrated with between 50-60 black and white photographs arranged in sections.

Format: Paperback
A very enjoyable read. With comical and lively anecdotes, the book informs and is thought-provoking too.. this is not just a historical reflection, but a basis for discussion of the importance of country-life past and present in a lively and well-researched manner.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By BoBo on 5 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent read for those with yearnings for "The Good Old Days". The book brings you from the days of Horseman to the big multi farming conglomerates. A real tale of folk on the farms of North East Fife, how they lived and worked on the farms and the conditions they lived in. Lots of personal recollections. It brought back lots of memories of growing up in the area albeit from a later age. Well worth a read.
