Review

'a magical childhood and offers a fascinating insight into the world of Scotland's traditional travellers' --Sunday Post

'a must-read for Big County history buffs' --Perthshire Advertiser

'a must-read for Big County history buffs' --Perthshire Advertiser

Synopsis

From the ages of 5 to 15, Jess Smith lived with her parents, sisters and a mongrel dog in an old, blue Bedford bus. They travelled the length and breadth of Scotland, and much of England too, stopping here and there until they were moved on by the local authorities or driven by their own instinctive need to travel. By campfires, under the unchanging stars they brewed up tea, telling stories and singing songs late into the night. "Jessie's Journey" describes what it was like to be one of the last of the traditional travelling folk. It is not an idyllic tale, but despite the threat of bigoted abuse and scattered schooling, humour and laughter run throughout a childhood teeming with unforgettable characters and incidents.
