A humorous look at the idiosyncrasies of English life. Part travelogue, part memoir, and all kinds of funny, this travel book is sure to bring a smile to even the stiffest of British upper lips! After nearly two decades of living in Britain, American author Bill Bryson decided to take one last farewell trip around the country—a sort of "valedictory tour of the green and kindly island" that had so long been his home. His amusing and detailed descriptions of the landscapes and people he meets all along his seven-week journey reveal the ludicrous and the endearing in equal measure.
