Taken from the bestselling 'Tales of the Countryside' series these are the very best of the interviews and anecdotes provided by characters such as Ernest Sharp the master thatcher, Harry Grass, 'King of the Gamekeepers', and Joyce Damerill, District Nurse and midwife. The twenty-five tales tell of the experiences of schoolmasters, railwaymen, vets, farmers, pub landlords to name but a few, and are richly illustrated with archive photographs and delightful colour artworks, which bring to life the vivid narrative, Capturing the memories of a fast-disappearing breed of country people, Best Loved Tales of the Countryside will be cherished by those with a passion for nostalgia and anyone who remembers a time when the pace of life was just a little less hectic and the people just a little more friendly.
