"Anyone interested in travel, in France, in farming, good food, good wine, and sheer good living will enjoy this book. The district between the small market towns of St Cere and Sarlat, in the Dordogne valley about 100 miles east of Bordeaux, is a region completely unexploited by commerce or tourism. Here the English traveller, Philip Oyler, has found a true rural husbandry rooted in tradition and a beautiful countryside where the balance of nature has not been disturbed by man. The region is rich in real wealth - crops, vineyards, stock, timber, fruit and fish. The author has lived in the Dordogne for over thirty years and writes from experience about the vintage and harvest, the festivals, and the hard but rewarding work of the peasants." Includes black-and-white photos.
