A disappointing read. Recommended by a friend because it had something to do with male bonding. I missed the point, and did not enjoy the read. I do not recommend this. ( )

To Mrs Wright-Biddulph of Burton in the County of Sussex under whose roof so much of this book was written.
First words
My County, it has been proved in the life of every man that though his loves are human and therefore changeable, yet in proportion as he attaches them to things unchageable, so they mature and broaden.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192814346, Paperback)

Four men--Myself, Grizzlebeard, The Sailor, and The Poet--wander through the Sussex of 1902. Their comical adventures and perceptions celebrate the vanishing landscape of unspoilt rural England and a lifestyle soon to become obsolete. The four characters are all personifications of aspects of Belloc's own nature.
