About the Book

The seemingly endless furrows ploughed by the author himself on his farm in Wiltshire provide the inspiration for this book, first published in 1934. The Endless Furrow chronicles the traditional life of the rural community while offering the fictional depiction of a 'townsman's' ambition to farm his own land. The simple joy he feels when he achieves this is conveyed in the pleasure he takes from surveying his fields.

  • A. G. Street

    A. G. Street was born Arthur G. Street in 1892 and grew up on a farm near Wilton, Wiltshire. He was a broadcaster and writer and wrote 25 books with farming life at their centre. Perhaps his most famous book, Farmer's Glory, describes his time in Canada before he returned to Wiltshire. Another book, Strawberry Roan, was turned into a film. He died in 1966.

    A. G. Street (1892-1966) was a farmer, writer and broadcaster. His first book, Farmer's Glory, published in 1932, was an immediate success and launched him on a long and prolific writing career. Most of his books were published by Faber & Faber and it is therefore appropriate that Faber Finds is re-establishing him with reissues of Farmer's Glory, The Gentleman of the Party, Already Walks Tomorrow, A Crook in the Furrow, Strawberry Roan and The Endless Furrow
