Country Lives Remembered - Brian P Martin
Country Lives Remembered Hardcover – by Brian P. Martin, edited by Ruth Binney
With every passing year the well-being of our countryside and its ways of life are becoming increasingly threatened. So, what a perfect time to look back at the lives of those who did so much to create the countryside we now take for granted - through coppicing and thatching to blacksmithing, mole catching and beekeeping - and to see how these skills are becoming valued once more.
Country Lives Remembered, through the evocative storytelling of Brian P. Martin, recounts the endeavours of 12 colourful characters whose lives are a poignant reminder of the hard work - and the hardships - of previous generations. Among their most valuable secrets was the ability to work with, not against, the forces of nature, however difficult that may have been. Anyone who loves the countryside will relish these often humorous tales of times past.
