The Mole Race: Life as a Dorset Fisherman and the Trials of the Bed-and-Breakfast Trade - John Eastwood

Winterbourne, 1982, Paperback.
Condition: Good+. Wraps slightly marked, lower wrap stained at the margins. Text bright and tight.

From the cover: “How a Dorset family opted out of the Rat Race and founded a new life based on fishing, small-holding, and the Bed-and-Breakfast trade. This story, with its humour and tragedy, reflects the challenge of their first year, when often the future seemed doubtful. The Rat Race was over, but the Mole Race had begun— more deeply rural and quiet, slower, more devious, more private and underground, materially poorer, but spiritually of great worth.”
