Summary

This book was written at a time when foot-and-mouth was very much in the news, as farmers across the UK fell victim to an outbreak that was to leave potent images of blazing carcasses deeply embedded in many minds. Morpurgo cleverly manages to avoid a feeling of haste in his writing (although the book was actually written very quickly, and as a reaction to Morpurgo's own experiences as co-founder of Farms for City Children), by giving the listener a thorough and poignant insight into what it is really like for farmers waiting to find out if they are about to lose their livelihoods.
