Abstract:

A collection of the articles Flora Thompson wrote for a small magazine, the Catholic fireside, between 1916 and 1928, when she lived in Liphook in Hampshire as the postmaster's wife. Her interest was captured by many things, including a kestrel hunting in the January skies, the return of migrant birds in April, the remedial properites of the elder tree, and the solitary life of the ploughman. Flora Thompson is perhaps best-known as the author of the country classic, Lark rise to Candleford, and her remarkable observations about the countryside form a valuable part of the history of rural England.
