THE OLE HEDGE CREEPER (From the start to the heart)


In this, his first book, Rob Collins, The Ole Hedge Creeper, shares some of his earliest memories.

This book takes you back through the sands of time, to a time of when the young hedge creeper was still in his Rupert the bear wellies on his 1st trip out in the hunting fields with ferrets dogs and nets with my family. As the book goes along it covers the first 20 years of his life and all the funny and amazing things that can and will happen in field sports and usually to Rob and his muckers.

From the time he caught his first rabbit, right up to the dog having his wicked way with Rob’s mate as he is stuck down a hole trying to pull a bunny out whilst out ferreting.  And the day Rob helped a very wealthy land owner’s daughter back to the manor house after she fell of her horse and lets just say this 20 something lady taught this 19 year old a lesson or 2 on women !

You will be crying with laughter at the hilarious moments or sorrow when the dogs and ferrets pass on.  It also instils a lot of traditional values and lessons handed down from his PAPPY and DAD and all my uncles and the amazing people he has met, all true country gents and roughs and real proper West country characters.

The book is dedicated to them as it’s not a book about Rob’s life – it’s a book about all the people who have made him who he is today especially his PAPPY.
