Childhood in Edwardian Sussex The making of a Naturalist: by Margaret Hutchinson (Author)
In this charming book we see Margaret Hutchinson in her rather special background, that of a large Quaker family in the pre-1914 days.  She recaptures with complete integrity the thoughts, feelings and outlook of an observation little girl - the middle one in a close knit family of nine and one with a deep feeling for an understanding of nature.

Exhibition and Practical Goatkeeping: by Joan Shields (Author) (9780862300579)

Goats have always had a strong body of followers; simply because they are useful, practical animals.  With the growing desire of many people to be a self-sufficient as possible it is natural that they consider the possibility of ground keeping.  A goat is smaller than a cow and accordingly, eats less food and requires relatively simple accommodations and equipment.  

Joan Shields the author has been breeding and managing goats for many years.  She is a top level judge and is acknowledged authority on goats.

Childhood in Edwardian Sussex The making of a Naturalist: by Margaret Hutchinson (Author)
Childhood in Edwardian Sussex The making of a Naturalist: by Margaret Hutchinson (Author) (9780946474134)

Her parents, Hebert and Elizabeth Hutchinson brought them up in a very old farmhouse on the top of Marley Heights 700 feet above sea level.  They enjoyed a complete countrified life.  There was no gas or electricity and climbing up to bed with a guttering candle is one of the author's early memories - yet they had  two deliveries of post daily, while tradesmen could be relied upon to call for orders and to deliver the goods quickly. 

In their somewhat frugal life the garden, farm, woods and meadows were an unfailing attraction and cost nothing; the children were never bored.  they careered along the lanes in their donkey cart and roamed far and wide.  With cows, pigs and chickens,they were self supporting to a large degree, plus the back breaking summer chore of whortleberry ('urts') picking.

The book is illustrated thought, not only with photographs taken by "Aunt Kitty" but with delightful recollection of the immediate family, and of uncles, aunts and cousins, and above all Miss Hutchinson's distinguished grandfather, the surgeon, Sir Jonathan Hutchinson, who founded the well known Haslemere Educational Museum.
