Book Review: The Wind on the Heath


The Wind on the Heath: A Gypsy Anthology by John Sampson. I thought, when I bought it, that this might be a collection of Romany stories. Though some of those are included, it’s mainly just a collection of bits of writing about Gypsies. Luckily, most of it is positive, which in the current climate of anti-Romani sentiment, is quite nice to read.


It’s a soothing, lovely read that makes you think of wandering down country lanes in summer looking at the pretty trees and feeling the grass brush your bare legs. It’s not much more than that, but there’s something to be said for any collection of bits of beautiful writing.

Recommended as a break from the hideous, fume-filled world of Today.
