Overview

When they were children, Clarissa, the rich little townie, and Johnny, a country boy, used to play together under the rolling downs of East Sussex. Forty years on, in a countryside threatened by urban and political misperceptions, the two friends had an idea to show people the reality of country life. So, forsaking the kitchen, Clarissa donned her stout shoes and set off with Johnny to the four corners of the United Kingdom. Their journey was recorded in an eight-part BBC television program, and this book follows the series as Clarissa and Johnny talk to country people about the concerns, the hardships, and the pleasures of rural life. Thrill to Johnny and Clarissa¹s battles with the elements, gasp at the drama of 40,000 pink-footed geese soaring overhead, or weep at the bravery of a hill ewe lambing in a snowstorm ‹ but in the end, laugh at the sheer fun of it all.
