A selection of Williamson's work from different sources. The theme is one of people, places and events which had a far-reaching effect on Henry's life – his schooldays; the Christmas truce on the Western Front in 1914 (at which he was present); his Norfolk farm; North Devon; and significant essays on the Victorian nature writer Richard Jefferies and the poet Francis Thompson.
Henry Williamson remains best known for his nature stories, Tarka the Otter and Salar the Salmon. This collection comprises a selection of Williamson's work from a number of sources, including book introductions; contributions to anthologies and magazines; a series of articles in the Evening Standard from which the collection takes its title; and two significant essays. The theme is one of people, places and events which had a far-reaching effect on Henry's life – his schooldays; the Christmas truce on the Western Front in 1914, at which he was present; Richard Jefferies; Francis Thompson; Williamson's farm in Norfolk, and North Devon. The print book was dedicated to Fr Brocard Sewell, a friend and stalwart champion of Williamson's writing, who died on 2 April 2000. In tribute to Fr Sewell, his essay 'Henry Williamson: Old Soldier', first printed in John O'Londons' Weekly in 1961, is also included.
