DESCRIPTION: Cotswold Tales... There have been many tales and anecdotes about the Cotswolds published over the past two hundred years, some of which are now virtually inaccessible. This book provides a fine selection of these tales - some amusing, others poignant - covering this corner of the country, revealing something of the unique nature of the region. The text covers a wide variety of subjects and, with much of it written in dialect, vividly captures the texture of life as it was at the end of the nineteenth century. Here are tales of the farmer and the country fir, the shepherd and his idyllic life and the rural wedding, but also of the death of a child and the effects of politics on ordinary people. Here, too, are anecdotes of daily life and characters still strangely familiar despite the passing of the years. In this volume is contained S S. Buckman's John Darke's Sojourn in the Cotteswolds and Elsewhere; Willum Workman's Wit and Wisdom by G. Edmund Hall and John Drinkwater's Cotswold Characters. Illustrated with original line drawings and contemporary photographs of the area, Cotswold Tales will delight visitors and residents alike.
