Description

City-dweller Richard Lewis has been having a problem with his roots. Had he been born in Dublin or Marseille, he would have had a rich tapestry of traditions to draw upon. But what hope is there for a man born in Croydon? Starting with the conviction that England must have a folklore as compelling, as exotic and as beautiful as that of other places, Lewis embarks on a search for traditional roots that takes him well off the beaten track--from the humble folk clubs of the Fenlands, across the Yorkshire moors via the Morris-dancing Cotswolds. With humor and a keen eye for the quirks of humanity, Lewis dispels some of the myths about English traditions.show more
