Sinopsis: The young James Robertson set out for the beautiful, badger-haunted fields of Devon to turn grass into gold via the medium of milk. It only took an encounter with his first cow to realise that he would need the survival instincts of the SAS if he were to live to appreciate this rural idyll. His cows did not seem to live up to their public image of placid benevolence and created a working environment as ruthless as that of the London advertising agency from which he had escaped. There were cows with sharpshooter hooves; an amorous bull set on enjoying the favours of a neighbour s herd or even those of the farmer himself, should he turn his back and the terrible tyranny of a new-born calf. The author s sharp observations and memory for detail ensure that all these humorous possibilities are fully exploited. This account of his first attempt at dairying is the funniest book about farming and the countryside you will ever read and with the vast numbers now wishing to escape the City for the holy grail of the good life, is perhaps now even more topical than when first published in the 1990s.
Biografía del autor: James Irvine Robertson is an author, broadcaster, historian, humorous columnist & contributor to a wide variety of newspapers and magazines in the UK, US and Australia. After working in advertising he became a pig and dairy farmer in South West England, contributed to agricultural journals and wrote a series of comic novels - the Any Fool series. He returned to Scotland in 1991 since when he has concentrated on history.
