This is a book about the village corn mill at Nootdorp, where I grew up. As a child, I knew this smock mill, originating from the nearby town of Delft, as disused and slowly falling into disrepair. How different things are nowadays! From 1986-1997 the mill was restored to working order. A group of volunteers, an official Society since 1998, now takes care of it, milling grain, receiving visitors and organising all sorts of activities. It is back in the centre of the community, and ready for the future too, (see my item on the possibility of a digital visit to the Windlust in E-News No 18 Spring 2015). In Dutch, hard cover, richly illustrated, mainly in colour.
