An American living in the United Kingdom journeys through England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland in pursuit of the bizarre antics, festivals, competitions, traditions, and other offbeat activities of Great Britain, ranging from cheese rolling and a shin kicking contest to pope burning in which the Pope is burned in effigy. Original.

From the Publisher:

Daeschner's trek through England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland is a quest to find out why ordinary people do such extraordinary things. He speaks to countless characters, catches them in action, and even takes part in the events himself. True Brits is the uproarious account of Daeschner's odyssey, in which he discovers, through these ancients pastimes, bizarre and hilarious new insights into the psyche of twenty-first-century Britain.

From the Inside Flap:

True Brits is the hilarious account of JR's trek around England, Scotland, and Wales, as well as a bit of Northern Ireland in London's backyard. From "Darkie Day" and the English summer "Olimpicks" to Pope burning on Bonfire Night, JR uncovers the people and places that make Britain great...and at times, not so great.
