Publisher's Summary

John Betjeman first fell in love with Cornwall during his childhood holidays and continued to return to it yearly until his death. It inspired some of his best poems and most evocative prose. The Cornish cliffs and beaches, modest churches and formidable sea have the power to stir him which only first love possesses. Opening with two long passages from his verse autobiography, Summoned by Bells, this collection then alternates between poems and prose.

    "A delightful window on a changing world."
    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful observations and thoughts on a disappearing traditional Cornish way of life and landscape from the master. Beautifully and sensitively read, especially from Geoffrey Palmer who, in my humble opinion is a perfect reader, who reads with feeling and zeal.
