Go back in time (1950's- 1965), to a place (rural Ireland) you will never have experienced, never will experience, except for one brief moment now.

A pig mom is playing with her childs
A little girl is driving a tractor.
A kid is nestling his father and touching a horse...
Love and the childhood happiness are filled in your book.
You let me remember my childhood, thank you!

猪 妈 妈 正 在 和 她 的 孩 子 玩 耍
小女 孩 正 在 开 拖拉机
孩子 依偎 在 爸爸 怀里 抚摸 小 马
书中 饱含 了 爱 与 童年 的 幸福
你 让 我 想起 了 我 的 童年 谢谢

你的書字裡行間及照片透露了過去的點點滴滴所帶給你的美好回憶, 與家人與大自動的互動是這樣珍貴, 是一本溫馨且發人深思的書, 愛身邊的人就要即時讓他們感受到,若等到失去的一天, 心裡有再多想說的話想對他們表達,就為時已晚了.

This is a most moving and delicate account of childhood, of family and of work. It is told simply and purely through photos and poems, yet evokes a seemingly bygone age which, in truth, has only just passed. Wonderful.
