Family Bookshelf edition. "For Daisy Baker, the acquisition of a donkey and trap at the age of 76 was a revelation. 'When Darkie came', she says, 'a whole new world opened up. So I found myself writing this book to express it all'. The donkey not only freed her from the confinement of four walls in the country cottage in which she had begun to see herself spending an increasingly cramped old age; but, because she moved so immutably at the pace of another era, Darkie also brought with her another kind of freedom" and so she begins to reflect on earlier eras, on her childhood and on the countryside she lived in. Illustrated with drawings by Pamela Mara. 160 pp. Near fine in very good dust jacket. .
