Once Upon a Hillside
Angela McAllister (Author) Chiara Fedele (Illustrator)
Angela McAllister's seven original stories follow the changing landscape of lives on one hillside from the Stone Age to the present day.
Six thousand years ago, people first came to the hillside and a story began. A Neolithic girl, Roman twins, a herbalist's daughter, an orphaned bird-scarer, an archaeologist's niece, three children without a home. Each faced their troubles on that ancient downland. All found healing in the place that Granny Down calls home.Wilderness, weather, history, archaeology and folklore infuse each tale. With gorgeous illustrations of the wildlife and surrounding landscape at different points in history, this glorious full-colour, gift book is a celebration of the enduring power of nature and lives well lived.
