Mary in the Country
Country Life, 1955, illus E H Shepard
“Mary goes to live in the country with her parents. Her pet cat goes with her and soon she acquires a dog of her own
and learns to ride on her aunt's donkey. By the end of a year the little town girl has learnt a great deal about life in
the country. And the young reader of the book will pick up valuable hints too - about such things as the training of
animals, the preparation of a garden and the growing of flowers. For. although she is primarily concerned in telling
a good story, "Golden Gorse" mixes in much useful and interesting information about country matters, as she did
in the 'Mousie' books.

farm. It does not go well, and the girls realise how little they know. Then Uncle Tom
