About this book

First published in 1932, Farmer’s Glory is a warm and humorous classic about farming life.

Written in simple, direct prose, Farmer’s Glory is a model of the genre and was praised at the time by the acclaimed writer Compton Mackenzie, who described it as “a thing of beauty”. Detailing the hardships and joys of farming life in the early decades of the 20th Century, Farmer’s Glory stands testament to a generation of those who cultivated the land on both sides of the Atlantic.

A. G. Street was a farmer and broadcaster, who grew up in Wiltshire, farmed frst in Canada before returning to southern England and wrote many books, of which Farmer’s Glory was his frst, and is also his best known.

Along with the introduction by James Rebanks, author of the bestseller The Shepherd’s Life, Little Toller's edition includes the original wood engravings by Gwen Raverat.

Biography

Arthur George Street (1892-1966) was a writer, broadcaster and farmer. Following school, he moved to Canada, farming the land near Winnipeg. Following his return to Britain he took up farming his family's land near Wilton in Wiltshire and turned to writing to supplement his income during the depression of the 1930s, writing many books, all with a strong sense of the local Wiltshire dialect. He later became a broadcaster and wrote a column for Farmers' Weekly for thirty years.
