Icons of England Edited by Bill Bryson.

review written by Maggie Perkovich & read live on the bookshow 2nd October 2014
This is an interesting book featuring contributions from some of our best loved writers and
broadcasters about what they consider English icons.You get pub signs, chimney spires,
bonfires nights, seasides, country churchyards, estuaries, ancient trees and hares.
Lots of other icons also feature including Alan Titchmarsh's choice wild flowers.
Prince Charles wrote the foreword, perhaps an English icon himself?? I loved it.
Very highly recommended. Maggie Perkovic.
