Product description


A precious and impressive invocation of that very ancient way of life. -- John Fowles

Ted Hughes territory seen from the inside. -- Andrew Langley, Daily Telegraph 1991

The sense of a comitted lived life behind the verse is very strong and appealing. -- Seamus Heaney, Letter dated 1991

From the Author

This book is extraodinary and has a life of its own. It has been translated into French by Rene Agostini of Avignon University and published in Paris by L'Harmattan. It has been dramatised and performed on the stage about fifty times and many of the poems have been heard on BBC radio 4.
It is the essence of 20 years hard work on the land and pays tribute to some of the country's most silent and overlooked professuions, the casual agricultural labourer.
