Reviews - What do customers think about Granta 82: Life's Like That?

Very good stories and photos  Apr 8, 2004
I enjoyed reading this edition. It had many stories of older people and included some striking photographs of farming families in England. I learned that the steam engine was first heavily used in England and was first used in agriculture there. Cool!
