Indian Summer Notebook
Cover illustration by Mick Loates, pp. 94, paperback, Henry Williamson Society, 2001
A selection of work from a number of sources, including book introductions; contributions to anthologies and magazines; a series of articles in the Evening Standard from which the collection takes its title; and two significant essays. If there is a theme, then it is one of people, places and events which had a far-reaching effect on Henry's life – his schooldays; the Christmas truce on the Western Front in 1914; Richard Jefferies; Francis Thompson; his Norfolk farm, and North Devon. The print bookwas dedicated to Fr Brocard Sewell,a stalwart champion of Henry's writing, who died on 2 April 2000. In tribute to Fr Sewell, his article 'Henry Williamson: Old Soldier', first printed in John O'London's Weekly in 1961, is also included.
