Inhaltsangabe: This beautiful and heartfelt encyclopedia of rural life in the middle ages gets its special charm because the author, as a little girl, knew shepherds and laborers who lived in a way hardly changed through the centuries. She shares that land, now lost forever, where man was the measure of all things.
Using as a framework a 16th-century calendar of advice for farmers, she takes us month by month through the country-dweller's year, and opens up the customs and traditions of a vanished rural life.
"An entrancing world where the farmer's mind and arms and the land beneath his feet gave him all he needed to fashion a full and happy life." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

It is not a history, being agricultural rather than academic. The term 'mediaeval', where it appears, is used loosely; for the most part, the life and work described pre-dated the early enclosures of common land and ended in the sixteenth century." ---- from the Introduction.
