"As Mr. Grimshaw says, England commonly means London and Stratford-on-Avon to Americans, but it is much more than that. Hence this author, who was born and bred in Yorkshire, tells of the real life of the Eng l i s h p e o p l e, and what it means to boys and girls who are so much like us in speech and habits, and yet so different in many ways. Home life and training, schooldays, sports, and pastimes are each presented so accurately and vividly as to b ro ad en t h e vi ew o f any one, old or young. He tells entertainingly of Guy Fawkes Day, which is to English boys what Fourth of July is to ours, and explains the many traditional features connected with Christmas, with many amusing anecdotes. Mu ch val uab le i nfo rma tio n is given about industries, and, with pleasing variety, the game of cricket is fully covered. The beautiful Lake region of famous poets is told of with a charm of style that fits the subject. Excellent illustratio ns f rom pho togr aph s e nric h a book t hat will help to make the world better by increasing intelligent human interest in others."
