35th Anniversary Edition

A Little Piece of England

A Tale of Self-Sufficiency

It began back in 1979 with a bucket of nuts and a herring net. Not to mention goats in the Mini!

Now considered a classic of countryside literature, John Jackson’s A Little Piece of England will celebrate its 35th year in print with the release of a special hardback edition.

This entertaining tale is brought to life by John’s vivid voice and by Val Biro’s charming pen and ink illustrations of the farm and animals done in the great tradition of English wood engravers like Bewick and Bickham.
