Description

“One of the great farming books” James Rebanks

First published in 1932, Farmer’s Glory is a warm, humorous and frank account of farming on both sides of the Atlantic. Written in unpretentious prose, the book details the joys and hardships of an agricultural life undergoing significant change at the beginning of the twentieth century. This edition includes the original wood engravings by Gwen Raverat and a new introduction by James Rebanks, bestselling author of The Shepherd’s Life.

Bain’t Feasible

PAUL BRASSLEY

It was May 1968. Students all over Europe were in revolt. My heart was with them, but my bottom was on a chair in the agricultural section of the university library, where I was revising for the end-of year exams. Eventually I could take no more of the life-cycle of the frit fly, that scourge of the oat crop, and got up to stroll round the shelves, vaguely scanning titles: Profitable Sheep Farming, Soil Conditions and Plant Growth, The Pig: Modern Husbandry and Marketing . . . Then my eye was drawn to a book I’d never seen before: Farmer’s Glory, by A. G. Street.
