The Flax of Dream

£14.99

Product description

The Flax of Dream tells the story, in four parts, of the life of William Beare Maddison - known as Willie. The story is based on Henry Williamson’s own early life but is not literally biographical. Williamson wrote the novels between 1921 and 1928, and in 1936 achieved his ambition to have the four books (The Beautiful Years, Dandelion Days, The Dream of Fair Women, The Pathway) published in one volume. Like his better remembered animal stories such as Tarka the Otter, it is firmly rooted in his own rural background. No dust jacket. Bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. The cover has some light general marks and scratches, and bumped corners and spine ends. A few light foxing spots on the text block edge and end papers. An ideal book for lovers of Williamson's writing.
