This book is hopefully an amusing and interesting account of how our mid life crisis turned into a life changing move from city strife to rural life in a remote Welsh valley. It follows the first few... More > years spent working to create a smallholding and become as self sufficient as possible by adapting to life in a remote rural setting, far away from the street lights and urban life we left behind. It tells of learning to keep pigs and chickens, lambing, a never to be repeated attempt to artificially inseminate a very big and very indignant sow, almost flattening the cottage with an enormous felled oak tree and the joy of seeing our first born piglets happily suckling. Littered throughout with recipes for hedgerow wines and preserves for light relief! Whether you read every page or skip to the alcohol I hope you enjoy the experience and don’t get a headache!< Less

Rural Pornography is an explicit and voyeuristic look into rural life. I call it pornography because of its explicit and voyeuristic nature and thus, it has nothing to do with the conventional forms... More > of pornography. The pictures are mostly taken in the Hardeveld which is a sub–region of Namaqualand, South Africa. It was a couple of years back when I decided to do a book on Namaqualand and its people, and my aim was to title the book The Forgotten People. The flowers and its plant diversity are great but its undiscovered jewel is the people. Over these years I collected a great number of photos and with the passing of my dear friend Cornelius Ovies this year I went through these photos in a quest to find pictures of him. It was then I realised that I was sitting on some of the rarest photos that explicitly depicts rural life. Thus the original idea of The Forgotten People developed into Rural Pornography.< Less

Before he met the beautiful Concetta, Lou had resigned himself to working in, and eventually dying in, the coal mine, just as his father before him had done. He was uneducated, he aspired to nothing... More > higher, and his future looked about as bleak as the company-owned coal-town where he'd grown up, Standard, Illinois. Then chance stepped in, and smiled upon Lou, through provision of an unlikely meeting between this coal-town scruff and a genteel city-girl from Chicago. For some reason unknowable, she liked him, and in that modest approval, she reignited in Lou aspirations he'd nearly forgotten, desires which had all but withered and died in the black mine which had already stolen from him more daylight than he should rightly have allowed. Thus, with his rediscovered yen for openness, greenness, sunlight and blue sky, with Concetta beside him, did Lou begin our family's farming epoch. It would be not the utopian adventure the two imagined, but an adventure still, and a story worth the telling.< Less
