Bondagers by Ian MacDougall

Book Description

These personal recollections of their working lives by eight Scots women farm workers were recorded in interviews in 1997-98 by the Scottish Working People's History Trust. At the time of the interviews the respective ages of the eight women ranged from 82 to 93. All of them retained clear recollections of their working years on farms in the south-east of Scotland, as well as other aspects of their lives, including their housing, educational and recreational experiences. Their memories appear here in edited form, but in their own spoken words.
