SYNOPSIS: Before agriculture became a matter of filling in forms, of headage payments and subsidies, there was farming. This book is an elegy for a way of life which endured for centuries but is now gone from the new Europe. This is a gentle, astonishing book. It was written in the 1930's, about farm life in Ireland. It describes in the most poetic of language the life and times in a year of the author running a medium sized farm in midlands Ireland. The author's sheer love of the land, and of nature bursts trough continually, yet he never loses sight of the realities of farm life. It's full of charming detail. Quantity Available: 1.
