A classic travelogue that brilliantly conjures 1930s Britain.

In this series of pen-portraits of England from the 1930s, Victor Canning 'evocatively captures the pattern and colour of English life' (The Bookseller), from Cumbria to Cornwall. Canning's heart-warming and humorous observations of sleepy villages, pastoral scenes and busy industries are a delightful time capsule into life in England during the interwar years.

'What does the word England mean to you? To all of us England means something different, and yet I think there is for every man and woman some little corner which is more England than anywhere else...'

***PRAISE FOR EVERYMAN'S ENGLAND***

'Wonderful... elegant, humorous, exuberant essays.' Guardian

'Evocatively captures the pattern and colour of English life.' The Bookseller

'Canning finds beauty everywhere, but never sentimentalises, and is consistently honest enough to highlight poverty and social inequality... Canning, at his very best when waxing lyrical about landscapes, offers vivid images of the English countryside...' The Daily Mail
