During the Second World War, John Stewart Collis volunteered to leave his comfortable life as an academic to work on the land for the war effort. His account of this time perfectly captures the soft-handed, city-dwellers naivety and wonder both at the workings of nature and the toughness of life on a farm. Previous ed.: London: C. Knight, 1973
