A Country Twelvemonth - Fred Archer

Alan Suton, 1992, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ.

The Vale of Evesham in the depths of rural England between the wars, and Fred Archer’s small world, was somewhere the ploughman sang in the fields as he followed his horses, the raggle-taggle travellers camped in the fields every summer to pick the peas, and on sunny Saturdays the village blacksmith strode out to the wicket in his belt and braces to knock the next village’s bowlers all over the pitch. In A Country Twelvemonth, Fred Archer’s vivid recollections combine with contemporary photographs and colour paintings to create a highly nostalgic and evocative book that will be of lasting interest to all who love English rural life.
