Laurie Lee left his childhood home in the Cotswolds when he was nineteen, but it remained with him throughout his life until, many years later, he returned for good.

This collection brings to life the sights, sounds, landscapes and traditions of his home – from carol singing in crunching snow to pub conversations and songs, from centuries-old May Day rituals to his own patch of garden. Here too he writes about Winston Churchill’s winter funeral, living in wartime Chelsea and his battle, in old age, to save his beloved Slad Valley from developers.
