Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1939, illus Lionel Edwards
“Riders of the Hills deals with the adventures of a group of children who belong to a West of England pony club. There are all sorts of children, a couple of boys in the dreamy adolescent stage: the poor little rich girl who has to eat her lunch in the car with a plate and a fork, instead of on the grass out of a paper bag: the hard-riding Irish family trying to make both ends meet, the farmer’s son who likes to put on airs : and there are all sorts of adventures – riding in shows, running away to London to go on the stage, circumventing unpopular neighbours, and all the usual (and some unusual) adventures of country life.”
