This book 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 sheep-shearer to stonemason, flour mill to farm shop,
milliner to printing all expertly documented,along with images of 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.
It is befitting that the
Cotswolds region, with such a wealth of outstanding characteristics, should be
the subject of so many publications: however, MORE COUNTRY FOLK COUNTRY
WAYS goes a step further than most in that it presents the area as a
vibrant, real working environment, brimming with real people, who blend
effortlessly into their beautiful surroundings.
