English Summary/英文概要: This wonderful book takes an affectionate, entertaining and perceptive look at the English people. Here are their traditions, foibles, quirks, customs, humour and achievements, triumphs and failures, peccadilloes and passions. Travel through England from coast to coast and learn how every county contributes in unique and different ways to the distinct English personality.
Marvel at crooked black and white halls in Cheshire and soft golden stone cottages in Midland villages. Go cheese rolling in Gloucestershire, discover the origins of cricket in Hampshire, savour a hot pot in Lancashire and a pudding in Yorkshire. Gasp at the glories of stately homes and the families that create them, upstairs and down, enjoy a pint. Listen to the memories and tales of ordinary folk from every walk of life and find out from them what it means to be English. This irresistible book will entertain and inform for hours on end.


Chinese Summary/中文概要: 这本书精彩纷呈,主要介绍了英国人不为人们熟知的一面,感情充沛,富于启发,不失娱乐性。丛书中,你可以了解英国人的传统和风俗习惯,目睹他们的成功和成就以及失败,感受他们的热情,也会窥见他们的瑕疵和怪癖。横穿英国大陆,通过旅行深刻体会各个郡县如何以自己独一无二的方式赋予了英国人显著的性格特点。
你会惊叹于柴郡黑白相间的礼堂和中部地区散发着柔和金黄色光芒的石屋。在汉普郡发掘板球的起源,参加格鲁斯特的滚奶酪大赛,品尝兰开夏郡的火锅,约克郡的布丁。瞻仰皇室建筑,楼上楼下,里里外外,一处不落下,你会对其光辉叹为观止,也了解一下建造它们的皇室家庭。倾听社会各阶层人民的记忆和民间传说故事,从他们身上可以悟出作为英国人意味着什么。这是一本无法抗拒的书,它会让你一直充满阅读的兴趣,每次阅读都会有新的收获。(zyt)
