In Search of England, Paperback / softback Book

In Search of England Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A re-issue of one of the great travel books of all time: H.

V. Morton's famous and much-loved travelogue about England.

Written in the early days of the motor car, this is an enduringly charming and fascinating account of H.

V. Morton's peregrinations around the hamlets, villages and towns of England in the 1920s. 'I have gone round England like a magpie' he writes, 'picking up the bright things that please me'.

He does so throughout with affectionate wit, whether they be snapshots of ruined gothic arches at Glastonbury or the engaging chatter of Norfolk farmers bartering for cigars.

Anecdotal, leisurely, full of character and event, insight and opinion, this is travel writing of the very highest order.
