Beginning with the authorOCOs great-grandmotherOCOs affair with a
Gypsy boy in 1869, this warmhearted memoir chronicles the Gypsy
life in a very close-knit community in the UK's Black Country. From
a lifetime teeming with incident, George Locke shares the best
stories from the old days, including run-ins with the police,
gamekeepers, and Gypsy-haters, as well as his fond memories of his
grandmother, Big Louie, who smoked a pipe from the age of three and
had ancient knowledge of healing plants. A nostalgic and wry
account of a way of life no longer to be found in rural England,
this book is full of lore, quick wit, and, above all, a solid
belief in family.
