Alison Hartfield spent her childhood in an isolated North Wiltshire village during the nineteen twenties, and subsequently trained as a teacher of young children in Salisbury. Set in the nineteen twenties "A Mile for the Milk" traces the impact of rural upbringing and a now vanished way of life upon the author and her sisters. The values instilled, the country school, the village, the times and the seasons, all combine to provide a 'childhood of unimaginable richness'. The author's memories of those fleeting years are beautifully illustrated by Judith Wall's line drawings. The book will appeal to all those who share the author's love of the countryside.
