Brother Dusty-Feet

1995 edition. Cover illustration by Barbara Lofthouse

Rubbing to edges and corners bumped.  Inscription on inside of front cover.

Along with his faithful dog Argos, eleven-year-old Hugh Copplestone decides to leave his Aunt and Uncle's house after one beating too many, and heads for Oxford to seek his fortune.

When he meets a group of strolling players along the way, Hugh joins them, becoming part of their acting troupe.  A new life meeting jugglers, puppet players, quack doctors and ballad singers starts for Hugh as the Players travel the country, and, as one of the Dusty-Feet, Hugh also experiences the freedom and fellowship of life on the road.
