The Road to Little Dribbling and other travel tales

The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson updates his bestselling Notes from a Small Island written twenty years ago which explored and celebrated Great Britain. In his latest book he returns his literay focus to his adopted country exploring how far it is possible to travel through the country in a straight line. He reflects on the wonderful, the disappointing and the quirky things he finds along his route, telling his story with affection and his own brand of humour. “And therein lies the charm of armchair traveling with Bryson. He clearly adores his adopted country. There are no better views, finer hikes, more glorious castles, or statelier grounds than the ones he finds, and Bryson takes readers on a lark of a walk across this small island with megamagnetism.” Booklist

There is a bit of wait for this very popular book, so in the meantime try another armchair adventure.
