9780715309681: Yesterday's Countryside: Country Life as it Really Was

Since the beginning of the 20th century, country life has changed rapidly and dramatically. This book looks back at Britain's rural past, aiming to provide a portrait of "real life" in the country. In defiance of rose-tinted nostalgia, it also explores aspects of country life that are thriving.

Review:

'This superbly researched book gives us the true story of country life, warts and all. Once opened, the splendid book is difficult to put down and every home should have one.' Petersfield Post

About the Author:

Valerie Porter has lived in rural Sussex for much of her life, and spent her childhood in agricultural Wiltshire. She writes books on rural subjects, especially on the lives of those who live and work in the country, and on farm livestock. She has written two titles in David & Charles' highly acclaimed 'Tales from the Countryside' series: Old Woodlanders and Old Country Vets.
