Echoing passages in his autobiography, Bates describes Northamptonshire shoe-making up until his own boyhood, the rituals of these times, and a current revival of enthusiasm for fresh vegetables and garden fields. "Inevitably we long to have back the things we destroy and of nothing is this so true as the good mother earth." One in the series "A Countryman Remembers" in Living (London, January 1974, viii, 1, p. 80).
