|Penguin English Journeys Box set of 20 books|
I found these today while poking around on the internet (don't ask me how, I don't remember the sequence of clicks!) and thought I would share them. They are reprints of old books which wander through the countryside of England. Churches, food, gardens, houses...they are all celebrated in these books which can be purchased separately or as a boxed set of 20 books. I managed to find a seller on Amazon.co.uk who would ship them to me in Canada (you have to look for one that says International delivery rates) for about £30/49 USD. Not bad considering they sell for about $10 each over here! Plus, I didn't want to have to decide on just one or two.
However if you can only get a few, here are some suggestions.
|Let Us Now Praise Famous Gardens by Vita Sackville-West|
|Cathedrals and Castles by Henry James|
|Some Country Houses and Their Owners by James Lees-Milne|
|Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard and other poems|
