A Wiltshire Diary: Penguin English Journeys

Author: Francis Kilvert
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
Category: Countryside, Country Life
Book Format: Paperback

Francis Kilvert's diary shows a compassionate and thoughtful delight in the people and beautiful surroundings of the English countryside. With good cheer he records his loves (among them poetry and the attentions of pretty girls) and his dislikes (including a distaste for bathing in knickers that leaves more than one beach scandalized), as well as the town folklore and parishioner's stories that his tender interest in others arouses. Heartfelt, humorous and reflective, this is a transportive glimpse of a time gone by.
