George Sturt (1863-1927), who also wrote under the pseudonym George Bourne, was a highly prominent writer on the traditions of rural life and the condition of the English labouring classes. Originally published in 1927, shortly after Sturt's death, this volume provides a memoir of his early experiences in and around Farnham, Surrey. It is written in a characteristically informal, personal style, with numerous beautifully rendered observations, and is also notable for containing an introduction by Arnold Bennett. This is a highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Sturt's life and autobiographical writing in general.
