1 Claypole, Jack JAMES BOYCE IS LATE - A Country Schoolroom and Beyond
Belfast, Northern Ireland Friar's Bush Press 1990 0946872333 / 9780946872336 First Printing Paperback Very Good 8vo Barbara Allen; 
164 pp. Trade paperback format. Light edge and corner wear with an uncreased spine; previous owner's name inside; not store stamped. Watercolour cover art by Barbara Allen. This is the story of life in a small rural school in Northern Ireland just after the second world war. The school facilities and resources were very basic and the children's experiences of the outside world were limited. However, the ingenuity of the teacher and the gentle, co-operative nature of the children make this a story of success rather than frustration. The times sure have changed. The Chapters are: James Boyce Is Late; Kinowla Public Elementary School; Early Days; Widening Horizons; At Home; Around and About; Some Neighbours; Colleagues and Friends; Children Growing Up; Visitors to School; and Goodbye to Kinowla.
