As I Walked out One Midsummer Morning Paperback
by Laurie Lee
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning is a beautiful and moving follow-up to Laurie Lee's acclaimed Cider with Rosie.
Abandoning the Cotswolds village that raised him, the young Laurie Lee walks to London.
There he makes a living labouring and playing the violin.
But, deciding to travel further a field and knowing only the Spanish phrase for 'Will you please give me a glass of water?', he heads for Spain.
With just a blanket to sleep under and his trusty violin, he spends a year crossing Spain, from Vigo in the north to the southern coast.
Only the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War puts an end to his extraordinary peregrinations...
