This is the autobiography of William Ewart Ashted, an aristocrat of the working class. From old age he looks back without bitterness along the years in which he and his sort have risen to power. His memoirs enshrine an epoch in which universal education has acted like yeast on vast, untapped, human resources and in which it proved possible for two of his sons to achieve considerable positions.
But, though the book spells out the whole spirit of the English non-conformist, radical tradition, it is first and forwemost the life and philosophy of a lovable figure - a master-craftsman who is a good husban, a proud father, and a staunch friend.
