Blowing up a wasps' nest, preparing a field with an ancient tractor, burying an Austin Seven - if you thought landscaping and nursery work was straight forward then think again. In A Slice of Life David G. Cox takes the reader on a gentle journey working on the land with his father and his quirky employees. Used to adapting to any job they work their poor old truck into the ground, carrying fast-setting cement and heavy machinery and in the event of accidents using wood and hammers to knock everything back into shape. And at the back, pulling the strings, is the 'Old Man', David's father, tough in an old-school way and yet man enough to be won over by a kitten. A must buy for those in love with country ways.

About Author

It's a tough life growing roses and landscaping around Windsor. At any time you could find yourself customising a mower, running from wasps, or crashing through a five bar gate. For David G. Cox and his old-school dad such things are common place, and in A Slice of Life, David recounts them with gentle wit and a sincere fondness for country ways.
