This volume is not in fact one of Alison Uttley's wonderful children's books, but rather a collection of beautiful essays. The first two, on writing and reading books, captured my heart as a lover of books and a would-be writer myself. Here she reveals her scholar-side, her love of mathematics and philosophy, as well as the roots of her writings on English country life. The book also includes essays on dolls, witchcraft, country craftsmen, gardens, and country words. No other author enters into my soul as Alison Uttley does, and her words and images remain for a lifetime. This volume serves as a good introduction to the author and her intense descriptions of the meadows and farms of her childhood. It also gives her long-time fans deeper insight into her writings and character.
