Full of the language and lore of the Gypsies, this remarkable memoir offers insight into the Romani way of life from an insider's perspective. Maggie Smith-Bendell shares stories from her traditional Gypsy childhood in the rural South of England, from traveling the countryside and facing hardships, such as the death of a family member, to catching wild animals and earning a living from the woods, hedgerows, and fieldwork in the area. Moving and inspiring, this account also reflects upon the changes in the law and agriculture that have undermined the Gypsies' sense of freedom and have contributed to the author's position as a prominent campaigner for Gypsy rights. Filled with traditional recipes, crafts, old songs, and Romani words, this record includes the knowledge and skills that have been passed on from generation to generation.
