Set mainly in the north of England, this delightful selection of nostalgic poems is bursting with vivid descriptions of everything from the local flora and fauna to the sea, beloved rivers and streams from the author's youth, humorous takes on the game of cricket, and light-hearted anecdotes in an extravagant style reminiscent of the Romantic poets. Although Northumberland and Yorkshire and Garfield Taylor's hometown of Scarborough feature widely, Cornwall, Cumbria, Lancashire, and even Italy make cameo appearances.
