Description

In his latest collection of writings from the Fens, Edward Storey gives a most unusual personal insight into the land and its people. Presenting his views in the appealing form of letters to his readers, he has been able to cover a fascinating range of subjects, from the origins of the Whittlesey Straw Bear Festival and the Peninsular War to the inauguration of the John Peck Society and the gradual disappearance of much of the fenland countryside.As usual, Storey colors his writing with amusing anecdotes, reminiscences, and his own inimitable style of description that make each volume a book to cherish.show more
