Arthur George Street was an English writer, broadcaster, and farmer. Born in Wiltshire in 1892, Street moved to Canada in 1910 and his experiences there provided the inspiration for his most famous book: Farmer’s Glory. Street began writing to supplement his income as a farm worker during the economic depression of the 1920s and 1930s and continued to farm after becoming a successful writer. Street didn’t only write novels; he also had a regular column in Farmers Weekly for 30 years. 

Street’s works were mainly fictional, often shaped by his day-to-day experiences as a farmer in the west of England. Faber and Faber published most of Street’s books from 1932; by the time he died in 1966, Street had written and published over 30 books. 

This collection of books, comprising the majority of A.G. Street’s published works, was donated to the Library by Arthur S. Holman.
