Fields were talked about as if they were living entities, and labourers had a feel for the land, born of countless hours walking behind a team of horses or hand hoeing root crops.

In tandem with The Spacious Days, this second volume of Michael Twists reminiscences is full of humour in its depiction of the characters on the estate and the experiences of a young lad growing into manhood. It tells of the wildlife that abounded through-out the country, of his friendship with a family of true Romany gypsies, of country pastimes and of agricultural shows and competitions.
