22307 So Leben Wir auf dem Land. /Keussen

So Leben Wir auf dem Land.

Very detailed pictures run across entire spread to board edges in a sometimes confusing mix of older and modern ways: a large farmhouse cut away interior, haying, activities near a river mouth, wheat harvest, a farmyard in late summer, a village square outside church in autumn, foresters, winter activity.

$50.00

 

Turkey and Partners.

More adventures of Turkey and his friends, likable boys who have a great deal of freedom to roam the countryside because they can be trusted to obey their parents' "direct orders" (only)! Set along a sleepy Australian River.

$22.00

 

The Adventures of Turkey: Boy of the Australian Plains.

The author, a schoolteacher, grew up along the same sleepy Australian River and went to school with a boy much like Turkey.

The Year of the Yelvertons.

A sweet story set in the southern end of New Zealand, the author's childhood home. For almost a year, Mr. Mac tidies up and decorates his house because his English cousins are stopping by. But better things are in store! Lovely countryside. (I don't copy. Unlike some sellers, I actually read the books!)

$35.00

 

The Book of Wiremu.

A classic little book, not a picture book but sensitively illustrated, telling simple stories of the idyllic daily life of a little Maori boy and his uncle.
