A classic account of the reality of life as a Gypsy in the 1950s when Travellers lived in horse-drawn wagons and stopped by the wayside in quiet country lanes, but were often driven to atch' besides main highways as so many of the old stopping places were fenced off or built upon. This book is full of stories of life on the road and descriptions of colourful characters living for the present despite constant harassment by police and suspicious landowners.
Illustrated by the author's wife, Beshlie.
Published March 2003; 312pp; paperback
“The real deal ... a fascinating, unflinching portrait of the rich diversity of characters and traditions of the Romani life at a time when it was threatened as never before” Choice Magazine
