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.
