A series of studies of a rural reprobate. Uncle Silas was a wencher, a liar, a poacher, a toper and at the same time he possessed a certain integrity, a rough charm.

Book Description:

A new edition of the famous stories first published in magazines in the 1930s

From the Back Cover:

This collection brings together the deeds and misdeeds of Uncle Silas, the rural reprobate H. E. Bates made so popular in the stories published in various magazines throughout the 1930's. Accompanied by the original drawings by Edward Ardizzone this edition captures perfectly the atmosphere of the thatched houses along the violet-banked country lanes.

Over the course of ninety-five years Uncle Silas had an extraordinary life. Occasionally irritable and vainglorious, but always charming, he maintained a devilish spark of audacity making him so attractive to everyone he met.

Now a new generation may delight in the exploits of Uncle Silas and savour this deliciously robust tale of rural England.
