Beasts Go West

Seventy south-sloping Cornish acres, almost within sound of the sea. That was Lannear Farm which the Creatons fell in love with. They were told it needed a young couple with plenty of energy. So David and Olive leave Kent and move west, with the children, Donald and Cherry and some heifers. As they set about farming Lannear they gather animals and people, and the lively buzz of activity never stops for a second with the infinite unpredictability of man and beast. Beast go West is a story of hard work, good times, and bad. It is warm, hilarious and brimming with joy, and it continues the memoirs of family life on the farm.
