Reardon Publishing 2014 1874192863 / 9781874192862 Paperback New Book Ref A91 
'The Gustav Holst Way' is the first guidebook to describe the 35-mile rambling route across the Cotswolds to celebrate the life and work of the composer Gustav Holst. Published exactly 100 years after Holst began work on The Planets, the route visits many of the places that were important to the young Holst as his musical career took wing. Among the highlights are the house in Cheltenham where he was born (now the Holst Birthplace Museum) and several venues in the Cotswolds where he played, conducted and taught music. The richly illustrated guidebook divides the walk into five easy/moderate sections (with four optional detours) and includes detailed maps, points of historical interest and all the practical information you need to follow in Gustav Holst's footsteps from Cranham to Wyck Rissington.

Big Louie and Me : Caravans, Curses and Cockfights, George Locke
16 George Locke Big Louie and Me : Caravans, Curses and Cockfights
University of Hertfordshire Press 2012 1907396829 / 9781907396823 Paperback New Book Ref Office 216 x 138 mm, 318 grams 
In 1869 George's great grandmother Alice ran away with a Gypsy boy called Joe Locke, but he soon disappeared when he found out she was carrying a baby. Two years later, when she was sixteen, Alice married her cousin and bore many more children. At the age of eleven, unable to stand his stepfather's cruelty any longer, George's grandfather set out to search for the birth father he had never met. Passed from one community of Gypsies to another, after nine months he met a Gypsy woman who stared at him and said, 'You look exactly like my man'. When Joe heard the boy's story, he embraced him and told his wife, "Mercy, this is my eldest son and we're going to look after him". So begins George Locke's warm-hearted memoir of life in a very close-knit Gypsy community in the Black Country. George's relatives formed the tightest bonds around him, keeping the family safe from outsiders. His grandmother was known as Big Louie and a more formidable character you couldn't hope (or fear) to meet: four feet ten in every direction, Big Louie smoked a pipe from the age of three and had age-old knowledge of healing plants. No child could forget having Louie's cabbage syrup forced down their sore throat whilst she had them in a headlock with her fingers up their nose. George's father was the Sherengro or headman of the camp. A former bare-fist champion, he was a hard man but also kindness itself. The prejudice he suffered made him hate bullies and bigots. Nor would he tolerate any cruelty to animals. Yet as a boy George witnessed fighting between both men and animals and was also sometimes caught up in the shenanigans around these illegal fights, where large sums of money changed hands and bookies didn't always honour bets. From a lifetime teeming with incident, George picks out the best stories from the old days: escapades to curl your hair, run-ins with the gavvers (police), with gamekeepers, with Gypsy-haters. Yet at every turn there's great good humour and always a strong sense of right and wrong. Sadness, too, most poignantly in George's tragic love for Sylvy, a Gypsy girl born on the same day as himself and promised to him in marriage on that day. This is a book full of lore and quick wit and, above all, a rock-solid belief in family.

Country Folk Country Ways : Reflections of the Cotswolds, Gibbs, Tooty  Stocker, Betty  Illustrated by: Stocker, Betty
17 Gibbs, Tooty Stocker, Betty Illustrated by: Stocker, Betty Country Folk Country Ways : Reflections of the Cotswolds
Reardon Publishing 2009 1873877927 / 9781873877920 Paperback New Book Ref OFF8 205 x 225 mm 96 pages in full colour 
"Country Folk Country Ways: Reflections of the Cotswolds": This book reveals through photographs and words that there is more to the Cotswolds than just its chocolate-box image of rolling hills and pretty thatched cottages. It shows that traditional craftsmen are thriving throughout the Cotswolds, from thatcher to cheesemaker, sheep-shearer to stonemason, brewer to beekeeper, dry-stonewaller to silversmith, saddler to farrier - all expertly documented. Time-honoured pursuits such as the famous Cotswold Olimpicks and the North Cotswold Hunt Meet are also featured, along with images of smallholding and working on the land which are the very essence of the English countryside. Those idyllic, atmospheric, pastoral scenes viewed at every twist and turn of the Cotswold lanes are also reproduced in this book. "Country Folk Country Ways" goes a step further than most books in that it presents the Cotswolds as a vibrant, real working environment, brimming with real people, who blend effortlessly into their beautiful surroundings. Betty Stocker was born in rural Cotswolds. Her photographs reflect her knowledge of country traditions and her love of the natural beauty of the countryside. Her work has been reproduced in numerous publications, as well as being selected for exhibition at the prestigious Trierenberg Super Circuit in Linz, Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna. Tooty Gibbs enjoyed an enviable childhood on a South Warwickshire farm and she too is a devotee of all things country. She counts it a privilege to add words to Betty's skilful, artistic and evocative pictures. It is appropriate that the Cotswolds region, with such a wealth of outstanding characteristics, should be the subject of so many publications. This is another book from Nicholas Reardon of Reardon Publishing the Cotswold Publisher.

A Gloucestershire Notebook, Humphrey Phelps
20 Humphrey Phelps A Gloucestershire Notebook
Stroud Gloucestershire The History Press 2008 1845886291 / 9781845886295 1st Edition Paperback New Book 198 x 125 mm 
Humphrey Phelps farmed in west Gloucestershire, near to the Forest of Dean, for most of his life, as did his father and his grandfather before him. He has seen farming change from the days when much of the work on a farm was done by manual labour and before it became overly mechanized and industrialized. In this collection of articles, which he wrote for various newspapers and magazines, such as "The Countryman" and "Gloucestershire & Avon Life", he looks at how farming has changed over the years, for better and for worse, and laments the passing of some of its more traditional aspects in the name of 'progress'. Written in an engaging style and with a genuine affection for his subject, this is a charming selection of musings and anecdotes, interwoven with serious analysis of the state of the countryside and farming that will appeal to all who love Gloucestershire and rural life.
