Acky is a unique and simple collection of stories about country life in Suffolk. As the author says: 'You won't find the names of Akerman Flatt and his wife, Sarah, in any parish register. But there were many more like them in the Suffolk villages shortly after the last war - couples who had brought up a family and who were now living by themselves. Acky and Sarah lived in a thatched cottage at the edge of the broad heathland of Fenhall - a village you won't find on any map, either. Acky is one of the survivors of those men who retired after the horses left the farms.' George Ewart Evans catches the language, character and rural humour of Acky and his friends with real knowledge and an unaffected touch, and as successfully here in fictional form as in Ask the Fellows Who Cut the Hay and his many other classic books about farms and horses in East Anglia and 'the oral tradition' he so valuably preserved. 'Our wisest and most knowledgeable English folklorist.' Robert Graves
