In Search of England Summary

In Search of England by H. V. Morton

A re-issue of one of the great travel books of all time: H. V. Morton's famous and much-loved travelogue about England. Written in the early days of the motor car, this is an enduringly charming and fascinating account of H. V. Morton's peregrinations around the hamlets, villages and towns of England in the 1920s. 'I have gone round England like a magpie' he writes, 'picking up the bright things that please me'. He does so throughout with affectionate wit, whether they be snapshots of ruined gothic arches at Glastonbury or the engaging chatter of Norfolk farmers bartering for cigars. Anecdotal, leisurely, full of character and event, insight and opinion, this is travel writing of the very highest order.

" 'The master of his genre, often imitated but never matched. His books are genuine classics.' Jan Morris"

About H. V. Morton

Witty, elegant and engaging, H. V. Morton (1892-1979) was one of the most popular travel writers of his time. After a brief period of military service he established a career as a journalist and became a reporter for both the Daily Express and the Daily Herald. H. V. Morton's debut, In Search of England, became a best seller. His genial writing style endeared him to the countless readers of the books he wrote about his travels around the British Isles, Spain, Italy and the Middle East between 1927 and 1950. In 1941 H. V. Morton attended the Atlantic Treaty meeting between President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill which established the Allied policy for post Second World War Europe and he was famously present at the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb by archaeologist Howard Carter and his team in 1922. After the Second World War, H. V. Morton emigrated to South Africa where he lived until his death.
