Description

After 200 years of farming in Yorkshire, the Benson family has been forced to sell up. Like so many farmers, they found that modern economics make it impossible for the land to support them. While the farming way of life never came naturally to Richard Benson - a point that sent him running to London - he still feels the loss and returns to do what he can to help his father and brother find other ways to earn a living. Set after the sale of the farm, its aftermath and the family's recovery against a background of cataclysmic change in the English countryside. Benson tells of his childhood memories, the lost generation of people in his village and his own attempts to fit in.show more
