About the Book

Peaks and Troughs is the story of a naive young man who is initiated into adulthood through the harsh reality of having to survive in the material world.  Despite the hardships, he never loses his belief that there is an alternative way to farm that is sympathetic to the earth and the animals in his care.  His neighbours never take him seriously and try to undermine his efforts as he struggles against the elements and nagging self-doubt, but he carries on, no matter how close to the edge he and his family get.

This is a warm-hearted, humorous and ultimately inspirational tale of a young man's attempt to run an organic farm in the unforgiving Welsh hills.


The Author

Nick Perry

Nick Perry spent his childhood in Dorset, out in the countryside daydreaming most of the time. He was educated at Parkstone Sea Training School before leaving for London where he worked for ATV Television. He travelled around Europe moving from job to job until he came into money. On impulse he bought a hill farm in North Wales. He lives with his wife Arabella in the Wiltshire countryside where he spends his time writing, walking and listening to classical music.
