The blurb:

“Mary goes to live in the country with her parents. Her pet cat goes with her and soon she acquires a dog of her own and learns to ride on her aunt’s donkey. By the end of a year the little town girl has learnt a great deal about life in the country. And the young reader of the book will pick up valuable hints too – about such things as the training of animals, the preparation of a garden and the growing of flowers. For, although she is primarily concerned in telling a good story, “Golden Gorse” mixes in much useful and interesting information about country matters, as she did in the ‘Mousie’ books.”
