Country Folk Country Ways Summary

Country Folk Country Ways: Reflections of the Cotswolds by Tooty Gibbs

Country Folk Country Ways: Reflections of the Cotswolds reveals through photographs and words that there is more to the Cotswolds than just its 'chocolate-box' image of rolling hills and pretty thatched cottages. It shows that traditional craftsmen are thriving throughout the Cotswolds, from thatcher to cheesemaker, sheep-shearer to stonemason, brewer to beekeeper, dry-stonewaller to silversmith, saddler to farrier - all expertly documented. Time-honoured pursuits such as the famous Cotswold Olimpicks and the North Cotswold Hunt Meet are also featured, along with images of smallholding and working on the land which are the very essence of the English countryside. Those idyllic, atmospheric, pastoral scenes viewed at every twist and turn of the Cotswold lanes are also reproduced in this book. Country Folk Country Ways goes a step further than most books in that it presents the Cotswolds as a vibrant, real working environment, brimming with real people, who blend effortlessly into their beautiful surroundings. This is another book from Nicholas Reardon of Reardon Publishing the Cotswold Publisher. Country Folk Country Ways: Reflections of the Cotswolds (Paperback) is presented by Tooty Gibbs (Author), Betty Stocker (Illustrator), and Nicholas Reardon (Technical Editor).
