9780044404217: Wind in the Ash Tree

(It's hard to do a sensible interview when a llama suddenly thrusts its supercilious face up against yours and breathes heavily down your nostrils. . . And you don't even try to stop screeching with laughter when a Golden Guernsey goat reaches over and snatches the piece of paper, from which her owner has been reading a classical quote about such golden goats, and munches it up loudly. The remainder of the tales are drawn from her life at home, which she shares with her strong-willed Australian mother, Mrs. P., and her numerous animal charges. There's Doll, a horse who's diagnosed by veterinarian Bertie as being a hypochondriac; two overly amorous goats, Dolores and Minnie; a motherless pig who dotes on baby lambs; a pigeon rescued in London who caused untold marital dramas by trying to elope with every female pigeon on the place; and every manner of chicken, duck, cat, and dog. For animal buffs, this one is not to be missed.

Further engaging and often uproariously funny stories about life on a small farm in the Welsh countryside - a follow-up to My Small Country Living (1984). A former Londoner and British broadcaster who settles wholly into country life, McMullen is barely managing financially until she gets the go-ahead for a radio series she calls, aptly, A Small Country Living. Her trips to interview those wise in country ways - an old-world herb gatherer, an importer of Icelandic sheep, to name a few - make up the basis for just a part of McMullen's witty and warm anecdotage.)
