ln this book from 1937, the acclaimed writer and engraver Clare Leighton takes on a series of country subjects, including Tramps, Plucking Primroses, The Pub and The Flower Show. With senses well attuned to her part of England in the Chiltern Hills, Leighton gently exposes the rural world she knew. Enhanced by her engravings her affectionate portraits of the people and their world are testament to a living culture.
