Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A Little Piece of England is an amusing account of how John Jackson, with his wife and three children, built up a smallholding in a sliver of countryside in rural Kent, and by trial and much error, came to make themselves self-sufficient in meat, milk, eggs, vegetables and some fruit, while learning various country crafts "in their spare time." John grew up near Lyme Regis in Devon where he was born in 1929. The family were 'flat broke' and lived on what they could grow or forage and "if the tide was right, what we could get out of the sea. By the time I was four," he said "I knew about the land. I knew how to use it. We had had an early lesson in how to look after ourselves."<br Later John wanted some of the experience of his own early years to be passed on to his children. In 1965, at the height of his corporate career in the City, the family moved from London to Underriver, south east of Sevenoaks, where they started out innocently enough with a few chickens. Before long they had assembled a cast of memorable characters - bullocks, cows, horses, sheep, goats, and geese - as well as a few four-legged freeloaders, largely kept on land borrowed from neighbours on a 'barter' basis. This entertaining tale is brought to life by John's vivid voice and by Val Biro's charming pen and ink illustrations of the farm and animals. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: A Little Piece of England tells the tale of how the author?s family, living in a sliver of countryside in London?s commuter belt, came, over some ten years, to make itself, in its ?spare time?, self-sufficient in its requirements of milk, meat, eggs, vegetables and some fruit. The book can be read in two ways. One way is for those, particularly urban folk, who are interested in growing their own food or contemplating a life style founded on their own smallholding. In this way, it is a book for those who wonder about the practicalities of living in a self-contained, permacultural way and for those who dream of making their own bread or even, perhaps, of eating their own mutton stewed with their own onions and carrots. The other way is for those, perhaps particularly anglophiles in other lands, who are in harmony with the stubborn, Saxon streak which runs strongly in the character and culture of the English. The streak which showed itself when London was fire-bombed night after night in the early 1940s and also when John?s self-taught grandfather told his children: "You don?t know what you can do until you try to do it". "Jackson in amiable anecdotal mode is as warmly devoted to his family as he is to his livestock and the land that sustains him, body and spirit, through his care and proper use of it." The Times on the first edition.

BRAND NEW, A Little Piece of England: A Tale of Self-Sufficiency (4th Revised edition), John Jackson, Val Biro, A Little Piece of England is an amusing account of how John Jackson, with his wife and three children, built up a smallholding in a sliver of countryside in rural Kent, and by trial and much error, came to make themselves self-sufficient in meat, milk, eggs, vegetables and some fruit, while learning various country crafts 'in their spare time.'

'The best way to get an understanding of the land is to use it. I have long believed that the health of a nation is better and its communities and their cultures stronger the more it cleaves to and values the land it lives on,' says John Jackson in the introduction. This entertaining tale is brought to life by John's vivid voice and by Val Biro's charming pen and ink illustrations of the farm and animals done in the great tradition of English wood engravers like Bewick and Bickham.
