He was an only child and had to walk three miles to and from school, summer and winter, always on his own. He loved the birds and animals he saw each day, and used to talk to them as in The Story of Doctor Doolittle. He believed he, too, understood what they said.When he left school he worked on the farm.After his parents died, he carried on running the farm until, on his seventieth birthday, he realised he was too old to do all the work, sold his sheep and went to live in the village.

Nobody ever went to live at the farm, and the house and buildings became derelict.A young boy called Peter, who delivered his paper, used to stop and ask him to tell him all about the birds and animals that used to live up at the farm.For any child who loves birds, animals and the countryside and wants to know more, the adventures that Peter, a young boy, and Joe, a 76 year old retired farmer, have on their visits to a remote, derelict old farm in the hills during the four seasons of the year, will find descriptions, anecdotes and conversations in this book, backed up by 190 evocative colour photographs that act as visual referencer points, make it a wonderful living experience for the reader.NOTE: When you read your Kindle, you will see on Page 4, that there is also a full colour Paperback edition available (152pp 6 x 9 & 190 colour photographs) to have in your bookcase to read again and again, at your leisure.
