This fascinating account of farming life looks at the stories of the farmworkers - a vital link in country life.

It's a story which has never been told and one that is gradually failing out of public memory.

Many workers had interesting experiences during their year or six months of hire and some traveled far from home to seek work. But this is just part of the story - the book also looks at many of the old-time fairs, sheep sales, butter markets, horse traders, the drovers and so much more.

Anyone with an interest in country life will love this history of life on the land - much of which comes from the people who lived through it. This book includes over 100 photographs (many from private collections).
