When Brian and Jane Viner took their three children to live in deepest Herefordshire, after eight years in sophisticated Crouch End, north London, they wondered if they needed their heads examining. They had been happy in the city, with an abundance of like-minded friends and a choice of dozens of places to drink cappuccino; in Herefordshire there were thirty five-barred gates between them and the nearest coffee outlet. Where would they find kindred spirits? What would life be like without mains sewerage?And would they ever stop being what some locals charmingly refer to as 'buggers from off'?

In TALES OF THE COUNTRY, Brian Viner described how he and his family upped sticks from north London to deepest Herefordshire, chasing a rural idyll that, eventually, they caught up with. By the end of their first year at Docklow Manor, Brian was struck by how quickly they had adapted to their new life, and been adopted by their new friends and neighbours. But wondering when they would stop being referred to by the locals as the 'buggers from off' paled into insignificance as they tried to develop some of the cottages attached to the manor as holiday lets. Neither Brian nor Jane had any experience in the tourist industry, and this quickly showed as they encountered their share of "Fawlty Towers"-type disasters -- and guests. A wonderfully warm follow-up to the first volume, and full of the same delightful humour and digressions, THE PHEASANTS' REVOLT: MORE TALES OF THE COUNTRY brings us right up to date with the Viner family's trials and tribulations.

Since she founded the Farmers' and Country Bureau from her farmhouse in the Peak District more than twenty years ago, Patricia has been helping love blossom the length and breadth of rural England. She has hundreds of marriages to her credit and numerous babies, including one set of quads. A born matchmaker whose warmth, patience and humour have literally changed the lives of hundreds of people, here she brings us the stories of love and romance that she has helped to create. Of course love isn't always on the cards for her clients. Take George, who wouldn't leave his lady friend until she'd finished knitting his jumper. Or the pig farmer who omitted to take a shower. But for the truly romantic take Harry, the poetry writing farmer who found his perfect match just when he'd given up hope. Patricia Warren's tales are pure delight - and a heartening reminder that there really can be a 'happy ever after'.

In an imaginative and masterful work of history, Pulitzer Prize-winner Sebastian de Grazia has created two memorable characters. Nineteen-year-old Oliver Huggins is in for the tutorial of his life. For twelve afternoons, Claire St. John, a beguiling British graduate student, will reveal to him the untold story of American Constitutional history. Her means: the Socratic method. Her message: that the Constitution was itself unconstitutional, and that its authors' inability to choose a name for the republic muddied the document's meaning for the future ahead. Through these "tutorials" de Grazia passes in review our most revered heroes—Jefferson, Washington, Marshall, Lincoln, and Thoreau—revealing the complexity of their characters. St. John's unsettling tales arouse more in her disciple than intellectual curiosity. Their relationship unrolls in so humorous and seductive a way that only a musty academic could object. Satirical, intelligent, and sure-handed, A Country with No Name combines history and literature, politics and law to reinvigorate our best traditions.

Assembled here are seventy-eight stories from six of the "ballad-singingest, tale-tellingest" residents of the eastern Kentucky mountain country. Based on stories rooted in European traditions from German fairy tales to Irish hero stories to Greek myths, the tales had been handed down through generations of telling before Marie Campbell collected them in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Readers will recognize the story of Snow White in "A Stepchild That Was Treated Mighty Bad," while "Three Shirts and a Golden Finger Ring" recalls the fairy tale of the Seven Swans. "The Fellow That Married A Dozen Times" is a lively rendition of "Bluebeard." As the narrators cautioned Marie Campbell again and again, "Tale-telling is nigh about faded out in the mountain country," but Tales from the Cloud Walking Country offers a lasting record of history, cultural heritage, language, and good old-fashioned fun.
