The Toilers of the Field

by Richard Jefferies

R.J.'s observations of rural english life and anecdotal stories have deeply enriched my life & longing to acheive the empathy he had for the natural world. The poignant stories of the lot of rural folk such as 'Absolam White' and his family shall always be with me.
A spiritual writer who wisely saw through the farce of Darwinian Evolution, -fairly unique in his time. Educated by his natural surroundings in a way that 21st century man lacks, (otherwise we should not be so easily fooled by evolutianary dogma) a mind broadening read.
