From the Back Cover
A luminous memoir from a poet and classic, multiple award-winning children's author.
In these pages, Kevin Crossley-Holland visits the foreign land of childhood. First memories as a war baby, starting a museum, being coached at Lord's, living above the spring line below the great chalk cross at Whiteleaf in the Chiltern Hills, and roaming in the beechwoods, holidays on the north Norfolk coast, falling under the spell of Arthurian legend...
This is also a book about budding self-awareness, eagerness, anxiety and the meeting place of actuality and imagination. Above all, The Hidden Roads revolves around the sanctity and splintering of family, the bonding of brother and sister and a deep connection with the English countryside.
