Famous for his venturesome spirit and advocacy of a self-supporting existence, John Seymour was thus a natural and sympathetic editor for this remarkable book, first published in 1970, which offers the authentic voice of a Romany gypsy (a scrap metal merchant and horse trader) describing the life he has led and the longer lineage of his family. Silvester Gordon Boswell speaks of himself as one of the Boswells who have been on the road in England for generations, traveling the length of the land in a manner largely unhindered. The book documents the Boswell family tree and the nomadic Romany lifestyle, and forms an invaluable document of a culture. Boswell died in 1977 and his scrap metal yard was later turned into the Gordon Boswell Romany Museum by his son.
