Description
In the 1950s the Romani people of Britain were on the brink of great change. In their bright wooden wagons they journeyed between horse fairs and traditional trading places, living on the fringes of a society that was soon to close around them. In his memoir of this vanished world, originally published in 1958, Dominic Reeve describes his life among the Gypsies—the feuds, fairs, and the joyful muddy squalor of an outdoor existence—peopled by an unforgettable cast of bold children, fierce matriarchs, and dandyish villains in snap-brimmed hats.

"The real deal ... a fascinating, unflinching portrait of the rich diversity of characters and traditions of the Romani life at a time when it was threatened as never before."—Choice
