Description
Information
This colourful, perceptive portrayal of English country life reverberates with the voices of the village inhabitants, from the reminiscences of survivors of the Great War evoking days gone by, to the concerns of a younger generation of farm-workers and the fascinating and personal recollections of, among others, the local schoolteacher, doctor, blacksmith, saddler, district nurse and magistrate.

Providing insights into farming, education, welfare, class, religion and death, 'Akenfield' forms a unique document of a way of life that has, in many ways, disappeared.
