By Laurie Lee


Laurie Lee left his childhood village to travel the world, but was always drawn back to his beloved Slad Valley, eventually returning to make it his home. In this portrait of his Cotswold home, Lee guides us through its landscapes, and shares memories of his village youth - from his favourite pub to winter skating on the pond, the church through the seasons, local legends, learning the violin and playing jazz records in the privy on a wind-up gramophone.This is a writer's tribute to the landscape that shaped him, and where he found peace.
