Tears for a Tinker

More “heartwarming reminiscences” of Scottish Traveller life from the author of Jessie’s Journey and Tales from the Tent (Sunday Post).
In this book, Jess Smith concludes her riveting autobiographical trilogy, tracing her eventful life with Dave and their three children from their earliest years together. Their adventures and achievements are interspersed with stories of her parents’ childhoods, her father’s “tall tales,” and the eerie echoes of ghosts and hauntings that she has heard from gypsies and Travellers over many years.
This fascinating memoir is full of more unforgettable characters and insight into the Travellers’ way of life—a tradition that stretches back more than two thousand years and survives in the rich oral tradition of its people.
