This book is about the diminishing number of England's rich variety of traditional farm animals, an area of concern that is attracting growing support, illustrated and written by a wildlife and landscape artist and campaigner for the preservation of the English countryside. Gordon Beningfield has produced a hundred new paintings of which farm animals are the main feature, by scouring the country in search of Gloucester Old Spot, Middle White and Tamworth pigs, Buff Orpington and Light Sussex chickens, English White Park cattle, Southdown sheep, Suffolk Punch horses and many other breeds that either have become rare, or are simply not frequently seen. The author's previous books include "Beningfield's English Landscape", "Beningfield's Countryside", "Beningfield's Butterflies", "Hardy Country", "The Darkling Thrush" and "Poems of the Countryside".
