“Romance need not only live under thatched eaves, drawing its water from moss-covered wells. It can survive the invasion of the tractor and the radio.” CLARE LEIGHTON
In this book from 1937, the acclaimed writer and engraver takes on a series of country subjects, including picking primroses, the local pub, tramps and the village flower show. With senses well-attuned to her part of southern England in the Chiltern Hills, Leighton gently explores rural culture and landscapes with affectionate pen-portraits and her wonderfully bold engravings of people at work in the countryside.
Little Toller also publishes Four Hedges, also by Clare Leighton, in the Nature Classics series.
