In a lifetime traversing Britain's lanes and byways, Romani Gypsy Dominic Reeve has witnessed a changing world. Since the 1950s, the horse-drawn wagons have given way to brightly chromed modern vehicles, stopping-places have disappeared, but the travelers still cling to the precious old traditions and the freedom of an outdoor life. Beneath the Blue Sky tells of horse-fairs and fireside deals, of snowbound Christmases and the joy of taking possession of a new motor. Reeve recalls feuds and allegiances, cycles of parting and rediscovery, and the constant struggle in the face of prejudice. Above all, he paints an unforgettable picture of the self-reliance, wit and courage of the Romani people.
