9780099276005: English the Countryside and Its People

In Michael Watkins' view, we are fast becoming a tribe of separate selves. It was to discover the pockets of resistance to this that he undertook a journey through England, to talk to the people of the country, whose work is to be found outside factories and offices and who identify with, and have a fierce loyalty to, the land from which they come. Far from the motorways, tower blocks and take-aways, there still exists an older England, inhabited by people who identify with, and have a fierce loyalty to, the land and the community. The English is a journey into that world. A view of rural England through the eyes of its inhabitants - eighteen people with widely differing trades or pastimes, 70 colour illustrations + 90 black and white photographs by Peter Pugh- Cook splendidly complement the text and show the inderviduals portrayed against the background to which they belong The Yeoman; The Shepherdess; The Lifeboat Coxswain; The Builder; The Gamekeeper; The Nature Warden; The Lock-Keeper; The Lobster Fisherman; The Landowner; The Meals on Wheels Helper; The Village Schoolteacher; The Thatcher; The Publican etc.
