Notes and Editorial Reviews
This bright and breezy guide takes us in 50 stops from London, round Essex and East Anglia, up to Scotland, then—via Wales and the border counties—to the west country and the south coast. Finally, back to the capital, and a quiet diminuendo as we drift down the Thames. Along the way we encounter the Lincolnshire Poacher, the Lass of Richmond Hill, the Wee Cooper o’ Fife, a few favourite hymns tunes and the taste of Devonshire Cream and Cider.
