Harvest Adventure, by J Wentworth Day

Harvest Adventure, by J Wentworth Day


Harvest Adventure is a celebration of rural England, as it was in the mid 20th Century.

Wentworth Day describes days spent shooting and fishing, fishermen and wildfowlers, game-keepers and shepherds, cattle-dealers and dog-dealers.

His observations span the length and breadth of Britain; from Welsh buzzards and mountain sheep to the pheasants and barley of the Norfolk 'brecks’, the trout and snipe of Hampshire water meadows and high wolds and fat cattle of Lincolnshire.  

James Wentworth Day (1899 – 1983) was a British author and broadcaster. He lived for most of his life in East Anglia.

Published by George Harrap in 1946.
