One Dog and His Man – A 2001 Farming Diary

Author : Keith Williams
ISBN : 9780853615914
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.75

The first few weeks of the year 2001 started out much the same as any other year in the farming world. An outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease that was to become the worst outbreak in living memory changed all that, turning 2001 into something of a nightmare for rural Britain.

The author, Keith Williams, a Welsh borders dairy/arable farmer, saw events unfold. He was fortunate in not having any stock destroyed, but was within two miles of an outbreak and spent many months under severe restrictions with virtually no income. The whole of farming suffered so badly that parts of it will probably never recover fully.

This book tells the story of the year through the eyes of Keith’s dog, Ben, told in a wry manner, as we watch the farcical efforts of the authorities as they attempt to restore order to the farming community.

A5 format, 128 pages, 24 specially prepared cartoons by Tony Grenow.
