From a Country Hilltop (e-book only)

This is a collection of 58 essays written between 1958 and 1964, and published in the Co-operative Society’s Home Magazine and, in its Out of Doors series, the Sunday Times. These short essays – personal musings on life, his children, North Devon (now known as ‘Tarka Country’) and other subjects – show HW’s descriptive powers at their best. Nowhere is this shown better than in ‘The Last Summer’, a longer piece that is an evocative personal re-creation of the last golden summer of 1914 before the outbreak of the First World War.
