The first edition was published in 1941, and the publisher's blurb is succinct: 'A few years ago, during the intense farming depression, Henry Williamson, foreseeing trouble, decided to become a farmer. Under-capitalized and with no experience of farming, and against all the good advice of his friends, he bought a yeoman-sized farm in East Anglia. This book is the story of the struggle.'
