In his "thinking traveler's tour," David St John Thomas journeys by rail and "Little Car" around Britain, exploring the fascinating and diverse character of contemporary Britain. He reflects on the nation, what makes its culture unique, and how the British people have changed, not always for the worse, over the 50-odd years he has known them as an author and a publisher. Taking in places as various as beaches, mountain moors, industrial and early Christian sites, great hotels, art galleries, canals, and cycle-ways, this narrative surprises, amuses, and engages, as well as offers a treasure trove of facts, anecdotes, and new perspectives on this extraordinary nation. Originally published in the U.K. in 2004, this is the first U.S. release of this treasure trove.
