Abstract:

Maggie Smith-Bendell was born in a Somerset pea-field in 1941, the second of eight children in a Romani family. As a child, Maggie rode and slept in a horse-drawn wagon, picked hops and flowers, sat beside her father's campfire on ancient verges, poor but free to roam. As the twentieth century progressed, common land was fenced off and the traditional Gypsy ways disappeared. Eventually Maggie married a house-dweller and tried to settle for bricks and mortar, but she never lost the restless spirit, the deep love of the land and the gift of storytelling that were her Romani inheritance.
