Abstract:

Starting from the point of having no water in the house, and with only a wheelbarrow by way of farm equipment, this hilarious account of starting up in farming, in a remote part of upland Wales, covers some three years of the early 1950s. The difficulties and indignities suffered are offset by the marvellous sense of adventure and real living that underpin the story, to say nothing of the humorous idiosyncrasies of the neighbours and the intangible satisfaction that comes from working close to Nature.
