From the Publisher:

Drawing on a vast wealth of material, Dick King-Smith has assembled a timeless collection of writings on country life. From his own best-seller, The Sheep-Pig, King-Smith has chosen a passage in which Babe, everyone's favorite pig, saves a flock of sheep from rustlers, while other beloved animal characters can be found in passages from Charlotte's Web, Black Beauty, and Watership Down. Poignant moments from The Country Child by Alison Uttley and Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure provide contrasting views of the pleasures and hardships of a country childhood, while Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie and Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows offer an unashamedly romantic view of rural life. With illustrations of breathtaking beauty by Christian Birmingham, this is a collection that all the family will treasure.
