Gwen and the Art of Tractor Travel
As a heavily pregnant woman in possession of a vintage tractor, Gwen faces the question of a lifetime: how to do something special during her last few weeks of freedom? Her answer: to embark upon a life-affirming, six-day solo journey, travelling at 10 miles per hour through the rural Welsh countryside. Following the most difficult and least-travelled roads, Gwen makes her way from camping site to rustic pub to lovely seaside town and back to camping site. She encounters the most extraordinary characters and portrays the picturesque Welsh scenery from the lofty seat of her Massey Ferguson tractor. This book is a charming narrative, brimming with quirky anecdotes as well as interesting factual information. Gwen embodies every person who has ever done something unique and adventurous with their lives; her story is both humorous and heartfelt.
