The book combines literary musings, philosophical considerations and local history, interwoven with autobiographical elements and a keenly observed assessment of the English national character. With his mentor Thomas as a cultural navigator - an English Virgil beckoning David Caddy into an unfolding wilderness of gorse, nesting blackbirds… Read more
