I first read this book 22 years ago and was glad to see the library had kept it in their collection. I am still as charmed as ever by the descriptions and dramas of the daily life of a "Scottish traveller family" as told by the young Betsy White. An enjoyable read with the flavour of a better time past and not returning.
