About this title

Synopsis:

Feel the force of winter and appreciate its beauty through this collection of the best writing on the season. Classic and contemporary fiction, non-fiction in the form of diaries, history and journals, and historic illustrations show different sides to winter. This is a wonderfully readable anthology specially selected to warm when the north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow’. With descriptions of the medieval winters from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and Malory through to the Thames frost-fairs of the seventeenth century; from the Scandinavian tundra to the deceptively simple genius of Jack London, winter here is shown in all its human significance. Some of the pieces will be wonderfully familiar, some will surprise and delight share a Prohibition Christmas cocktail with Damon Runyon’s Dancing Dan, and load the sledges with Banjo’ Paterson in Australia!

About the Author:

Felicity Trotman was born in Belfast, moving to Wiltshire as a child. Having studied graphic design and taken a History degree, she worked in publishing. She was a fiction editor at Puffin and at Macmillan Children’s Books. Eventually turning freelance, she added history and military history to her children’s specialty though she admits that she prefers firing guns to writing about them. She is a churchwarden, school governor, and has spent many happy years as a member of the English Civil War Society.
