Product Description



'Very occasionally one comes across a book which, in its unexpected delights, inspires one to leap about wild with praise, and rush out to buy copies for friends. This first work by William Newton, retired doctor, will surely have this effect on many readers . . . Newton is a wonderful find, it's my book of the year and I shall give it to everyone for Christmas' (Spectator)

'I predict that this book will become something of a cult. There is an obvious surface charm to the elegant writing, whimsical story and delightfully Shell-Guide-style jacket. But beneath that it has enough of the unexpected, the unexplained, even the weird, to go on haunting the reader's imagination long after he has put the book down' (Country Life)

'The Two Pound Tram deserves to be a classic, as much beloved by grandparents as by grandchildren and every generation in between. Don't miss it' (Saga)

'Enchanting' (Guardian) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

A mesmerising tale of Empire, wild daring, love and conquest in Lawrence's Arabia --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
