Description

Dick's story begins with his apprenticeship on a farm before World War II, his war experiences and his childhood romance with the girl he later married. Then come the 14 years he spent on Woodlands Farm where the eccentric cast of animals and humansprovided a wealth of material for his later writing. This is farming at its funniest but, when the farm failed, Dick settled into teaching before blossoming as a writer, and finding international fame with the release of the film, BABE.
