A local farmer and author from Yarcombe has drawn on his own life experiences in his latest book - bringing the spirit of farming to life.
A Country Collection is the fourth book published by writer John Carter and centres around stories and poems he has written over the years.
It also features contributions from other local people.
“This latest book has a seasonal thread and highlights the spirit of farming, nature and the land in all weathers.” says John. “It is essentially a mixture of different human experiences to browse through at your leisure, designed to stop you falling asleep or to help you do that. The observations and writings are from my life and work while making a living from farming the land, working with livestock and enjoying the beauty of the challenging countryside in all seasons, with country people,” adds the 76-year-old.
John’s previous books include Journey into Farming. He is still involved in farming life today.
A Country Collection is available from the Curious Otter in Ottery St Mary and other book shops in the area and is priced £9.50.
