Enlightening and Fun Read Took Me Back To The England Of My Youth,
This review is from: A Yank Back to England: The Prodigal Tourist Returns (Paperback)

My Air Force father was stationed to England in the 50's. I loved it there and always wanted to return to visit. A Yank Back To England:The Prodigal Tourist Returns,stirred many memories of our rural residences there,and visiting London and so many charming villages. The touch of humor was especially fun,as was reading about some of the foods.Everything goes good with toast,LOL!

Loved the many vivid descriptions of the places visited and the foods. Felt I was there with them!

I can still picture all those little fields separated by hedgerows and low stone walls. I wonder if they still exist?

Highly recommended for those who love to read about what life was like in England a few decades ago.
