Large Print - 1992
Rate this:
Sybil Marshall was born in 1913 in one of the lowest and most isolated of the black fens in what was then Huntingdonshire. All her antecedents, except one, can be traced to within a few miles of Ramsey, back at least to the beginning of the 18th century. Sybil can claim to be a genuine fen tiger, one of the few still left. She writes about her clannish, warm, hospitable, gifted and laughter-loving family, her 'kin', and the friends and neighbors who shared a life-style dictated by the environment and the isolation. Work, dress, food, fashions, customs - everything from a mouth-watering recipe for onion dumplings to the advent of the wireless is recorded.
