Jessie's Journey
By

Rating
From the age of 5 to 15, Jess Smith lived with her parents, sisters and a mongrel dog, in an old, blue Bedford bus. They travelled the length and breadth of Scotland, and much of England too, stopping here and there until moved on by the local authorities, or driven by their own instinctive need to travel. By campfires, under the unchanging stars, they brewed up tea, telling stories and singing songs late into the night. Jessie's Journey describes what it was like to be one of the last of the traditional travelling folk. It is not an idyllic tale, but despite the threat of bigoted abuse and disrupted schooling, humour and laughter run throughout a childhood teeming with unforgettable characters and incidents.
