Romany Legends Daniel and Dolly Buckley The Gypsy Way

by

Romany Legends Daniel and Dolly Buckley The Gypsy Way traces Mary King’s unique family history back to the 1920s. The book follows the Buckleys, a well-known Romany gypsy family that lived according to gypsy traditions. The book contains tales, reflections, memories and anecdotes of days gone by; from when Daniel and Dolly were just young children, to them raising their own young family whilst living in a wagon. The couple faced struggles on a daily basis, but lived a happy, content life. The end of their lives saw their funerals becoming events of an unprecedented scale, and rightly so, for in their time this couple were living legends. Inspired by Maggie Smith-Bendell’s Rabbit Stew and a Penny or Two, the book provides a unique insight into Romany gypsy life, which Mary hopes will inspire readers to preserve traditions that are lost in modern life. Romany Legends Daniel and Dolly Buckley The Gypsy Way is illustrated with photographs and will appeal to readers who want to learn more about gypsy traditions.
