'A vivid and imaginative interrogation of human relationships in the context of the relations between Travellers and English country people, and a worthy sequel to Gypsies Stop Here.' --Thomas Acton, OBE, Professor of Romani Stiudies, University of Greenwich:
'Miriam Wakerly's books Gypsies Stop tHere and No Gypsies Served are a window to the bigotry that a race of people in the UK still experience.

I would recommend that people read these books as a reflection of the reality of contemporary Britain.' --Dr John Coxhead, Author of Last Bastion of Racism
