Cloth, 8vo, 148 pp. From the blurb: Susan Chitty has achieved a new kind of guide to North Devon. It portrays a very popular holiday area as its greatest writer, Charles Kingsley, experienced it and was influenced by it, and she herself came to know it when researching her very successful biography. The Beast and the Monk. It is this combination of Kingsley scholarship and personal knowledge that gives the book a new dimension. For him North Devon was always 'the beloved country' and his enthusiasm is infectious. She covers the area in the light of Kingsley's life and books. Places, such as Clovelly and Bideford, which played an important role in Kingsley's development, take on an actuality and new interest that will enhance the visitor's pleasure when he visits them. The tourist will see North Devon through Kingsley's eyes and his appreciation will be enriched by associations with novels like Westward Ho! There is no doubt, for instance, that it was seeing shipwrecks as a child from Hartland Point that was one of the factors that directed Kingsley to the writing of that classic novel. The whole coastline and its people were, indeed, an important influence on him as a writer. With this background, and with the guidance of the author herself who has walked and ridden through all this Kingsley country, here is a book that personalises North Devon in a manner that will be found rewarding for any visitor before or after a holiday there."
