City boy Philip Dixon quickly realises that he has much to learn when he starts his farming career. Enjoy hilarious incidents, mysterious country ways, romance, and the rewards and hardships of a farming life.


As a city boy, all Philip Dixon wanted to be in life was a farmer, but achieving that ambition would be a lot less straightforward than he had anticipated!
Starting work on a farm at the age of fifteen, Philip finds himself handling some highly temperamental bulls, meeting some very ‘witchy’ women and encountering mysterious country ways. Later he gets married, raises a family, acquires his own farm and, along the way, becomes part of the Round Table team that invented the charity plastic duck race!
Enjoy Philip's story as he makes progress in his farming career in the north east of England from the 1960s to the mid-1980s, and meets some remarkable characters, many of whom belong to an age all but lost to us.
Philip's story will, at times, have you laughing out loud and weeping tears of sympathy, and will lift your spirits as you read how he overcomes all life’s setbacks to make plans for a brave new future.
