Published under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, it is
copiously illustrated with photographs depicting land-girls in nearly every
branch of the work they undertake. The text by Vita Sackville-West is not
over-burdened with dry facts, but aims at rather giving a "human" picture of the
land-girl's life; but for those who demand also an informative work of
reference, anumber of tables of facts and statistics are included in a separate
appendix. It is thus a comprehensive survey of an important branch of women's
work in the war. Full of wonderful contemporary photographs.
