about

The rolling hills of Wiltshire were subjected to the business of canal-making in Georgian times. During 2004 the 12 year old blonde haired Gregory Gray arrived at a towpath on his red bicycle.

“Birdlegs” gentle ways endear him to the waterfowl, farming community and the herd of cattle. One female moorhen, Madcap is “outrider” for the herd. She vets humans as they appear on the towpath, which is the initial entry point for G G. Greg discovers life is not routine for farmer Crock when the cattle are as mischievous but lovable as any group of people.

Coff, the black Aberdeen Angus calf along with his mother Giggles encourages the humans to compete the duo in a class at the local Agricultural Show.

A second moorhen family thoroughly impresses G G. The second family show him how their bodily lightness takes them both in and out of danger when humans and calves share space. Gradually his isolation and insulation are removed by the almost daily bonding.

Village minds endear his family but one presence brings forth tough reality. Tests have to be faced, learning curves have to be surmounted. The grandparents in Birmingham seem to know when to add a timely call,

The caring team of canal engineers are kept busy when the scene is full of novices, tethered canal boats and waterfowl. The engineers hope to keep a low profile during the hectic summer but greenness takes it's toll.

THE TEXT IS A CHALLENGING READ AND SUITABLE FOR READERS AGED OVER 11 YEARS.
