A Countryman's Creel
by Conor Farrington
The Remarkable, the Heart-rending, the Intriguing, the Almost Unbelievable Short Stories of Conor Farrington.
A guest at a Scottish country estate is not all he seems; a solicitor with an addiction to point-to-point racing encounters a run of disastrous luck – but why is his close friend so pleased? A flyfisherman meets the disoriented Lady Anstey in a downpour and is drawn into a threatened world; and keen wildfowler Hugh McParland is enjoying his sport on the Norfolk coast when he joins a stranger on a pleasure boat and is embroiled in a game of high stakes.
Here is a collection of 12 wonderful country-sports bedside stories by a talented new writer.
Recalling the spirit of the great ripping yarns of such writers as John Buchan and Rider Haggard, this book is designed to entertain all those interested in the great outdoors and in reading stirring and entertaining short stories.
A Countryman’s Creel explores the British countryside in settings ranging from the Edwardian to the present day, exploring themes of enduring relevance for today.
