Frt dj flap states: This book is a 'must' for all country people, and for the thousands who live in cities but still turn to the out-of-doors for recreation. Contents are arranged into twelve chapters representing the 12 months of the year. The range is as wide as British life itself. The aim being both a mirror and a reminder, reflecting the goings-on both great and small that make life in our villages always worth talking about. Whether it be the tale of the gentleman who found a fox at his heel instead of a dog, the lady who decided to move her manor house into the next county, the judge who wrecked the barristers' life, or the canon who finally got his goose.
