Thirty Somerset Women employed in a fascinating variety of occupations describe their working lives in their own words. Full of revealing and humorous moments. Their stories as told to James Crowden provide a compelling insight into the heart of a rural community. Tales of hard work and achievement are accompanied by atmospheric black and white portraits taken by Pauline Rook.
This is the second time that Rook has collaborated with Crowden – the duo’s previous publication, Bridgwater – The Parrett’s Mouth, was praised by PHOTO ART Internation as ‘delightful’ and ‘a lovely little book’.
“Its pages shatter the cliched myth of the rosy cheeked farmer’s wife scattering corn from her apron for a handful of chickens…” The Countryman
