Richard Booth, who turned Hay-on-Wye into a thriving book town, planned to form a new political party under the banner of "Rural Revival." This pamphlet is one of several promoting the benefits of traditional country ways, in this case the use of horses for work, economy, tourism, personal health, etc. Booth also proposes a Hay Cavalry, which would perform duties such as policing ("one horseman would be worth ten foot soldiers in something like an anti-nuclear protest") and patroling the countryside to monitor its condition. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate. Uncommon.

Price: $25.00
