Writing in the Foreword, Jonathan Young, Editor of The Field, says:
'Field readers always have the solution to a problem, whether it's a pattern for kiltsocks (Patons No 3285) or clearing out a vacuum flask (bicarbonate of soda) and they have always been more than forthcoming with robust advice; you should not perhaps ask a Field reader for the best way to cure a sick guinea pig.'
Help is at hand in this charming and invaluable potpourri of questions from the readers of The Field with answers from their knowledgeable columnists. A vast range of subjects is covered from household to garden; sporting lore to legal; animals to natural history and, when the going gets tough, how to make a tipple of beech leaf gin.
Meticulously edited to bring together the most practical and intriguing selection of useful information and solutions which will become a little gem in every household. Quirky illustrations throughout by Kerry Lemon will make this book an ideal gift.
