Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book that covers the topic very well. It has a good balance of all components such as statistics,first hand accounts, detail and general context. It is very informative and enjoyable to read.

On the whole a great book to have aswell as the other books on rural life in the past without sentiment.

Illustrated section is very poor in my paperback copy.

Lots of good information, excellent for a starting point on the subject. Anyone woud need to get a book specific on any of the chapters to go into more detail. Definitely worth buying.

Interesting, with plenty of facts of everyday lvillage ife in the Victorian era. Perhaps a bit too much reliance on quotes from contemporary sources.
Good reference book
