              Ludlow's working classes lagged far behind the rest of the country when it came to living conditions, and from 1850-1960 they lacked most of the basic comforts. Typhoid was rife, countless town hovels had no access to running water and outside drop toilets were shared by up to fi...ve crowded households.

              Many home-steaders have plunged in at the deep end and learnt through experience. But Phyllida Barstow, author of the childhood autobiography My Animals and Other Family, was already steeped in animal husbandry when, as a young woman, she embarked on her own home-steading enterpr...ises. Here is her lively, informative and witty account of her first-hand experience throughout her lifetime in Gloucestershire, with chickens, dogs, goats, horses, sheep, peacocks, alpacas and even honey bees. As she points out, small-holding is not a summer idyll but truly a job for all seasons, all hours, all weathers. She also has to deal with fallen stock, pest control, disease outbreaks and slaughter. Her tips include those on animal handling, leading, breeding and delivery. Her wry and practical attitude towards her animals is imbued with respect and often affection for her charges. This account of the realities of modern home-streading is both entertaining and informative.

His tale covers the years from 1959 to 1979 and he left when the traditional brewing industry in Britain reached one of its lowest ebbs. But Frank is now delighted to see the revival of interest in good beer and he ends the book with a brief round-up of some of the best pubs in England where he has had the pleasure of drinking a pint.Frank's account of the fortunes of the British brewing industry over three critical decades is an important contribution to the history of our brewing heritage. His story is informative, lively and heart-warming.

              This is the golden age of bullfighting. In the last 60 years, the number of bullfights (corridas) held in Spain has increased almost ninefold, peaking in 2007. Great bullfighting names have the status of football stars, with heroes including Cayetano, Jos (c) Tom s, Enrique Ponce... and Morante de la Puebla, their styles ranging from the flamboyant and breath-takingly reckless to calm domination and technical mastery.Many English-speaking tourists on holiday witness this most ancient and colourful of spectacles, but few understand what is really going on.This illustrated guide acknowledges that attending a bullfight is controversial and will not appeal to everyone. It throws light on the bullfighter's art and outlines the structure of the corrida, the key players and the various moves and stages.A fascinating and complex event is defined step-by-step in layman's terms. The music, the excitement and reactions of the crowd and the drama are all put into context and one of the most ancient and unusual of modern spectacles becomes clear.This book is designed to give readers of whatever persuasion an understanding of bullfighting, so that they can either increase their pleasure in watching a corrida in Spain, France or South America, or simply learn what is involved in this most complex, moving and controversial of spectacles.
