Synopsis: When Fred Archer was a boy, men's voices were deep and mellow as they rang out following the plough, or sang in church on Sundays, a farmer could make a living with a herd of 20 cows, and each village had a blacksmith and wheelwright. Workers days were broken only by the turning rhythm of the seasons and the pleasure of a chat when they stopped for their bait of bread and cheese. This book recreates those days of the 1920s and 30s when life was so different from today.

Review: Fred Archer's childhood in the 1920s and 30s in an English village chronicles life between the wars, providing rich personal accounts of the times and including plenty of spirited descriptions of personalities, events, and setting. This will make excellent supplemental reading for any student or adult seeking a personal account of the times. -- Midwest Book Review
