The Romany Gypsies of Britain were - and still largely are - an oral culture. Their customs, stories, genealogies and language may have been extensively studied and documented by non-Gypsy observers through-out the centuries - with varying degrees of inaccuracy and embroidery. But a search of the British Library catalogue will reveal only a handful of books written by Gypsies themselves about their own lives, experiences and lifestyle. This autobiography is one of those literary rarities. It is made rarer still by the fact that it was originally published as a pamphlet.
