Synopsis: 

This is the charming biography of the author’s father, Fred Kellow, who was born into a farming family in Burcombe, South Wiltshire in 1924. His early life was dominated by poverty which was common in those days and it was at this time that Fred developed a great love for the countryside, in particular a keen interest in shooting. He started his working life in the late 1930’s, firstly as a builder for a very short spell, then as a farmworker and part-time rabbit catcher. In the 1950’s he took a small change in direction and became a gamekeeper. He soon built a strong reputation amongst the shooting fraternity as one of the best gamekeepers of his generation and his extensive knowledge was always in demand by shooting folk. A delightful, often poignant read, this book is sure to appeal to a wide audience.
