In their first book, Clarissa and the Countryman, Clarissa Dickson Wright and rural mentor Johnny Scott showed us the beauty and harshness of British country life and the links among farming, fields sports, and conservation. Now they take the theme further to show the connection between rural communities and urban employment. Clarissa and Johnny sally forth from Johnny's sheep farm in the Borders to tweed makers in Halifax, gunsmiths in Lancashire, bootmakers in Northamptonshire, and woodland managers in the West Country. There is a tendency to think of rural and urban life as separate entities; in this enlightening tour, Clarissa and Johnny show how they are inextricably interwoven. Clarissa Dickson Wright practiced as a barrister before pursuing her talent as a cook and food writer; she went on to become half of the highly popular Two Fat Ladies duo with Jennifer Paterson. Sir John Scott has been a hill sheep farmer for 25 years.
