Product Description

From Library Journal

I Am England , Wright's biography of a placea pool on a ridge above a forest, England in microcosmchronicles the lives of Brac the primitive smith, Edred, Alfred's Saxon warrior, Rico, the traveling storyteller, and Francis, ironmonger and martyr. The community, its traditions, etc., is shaped by movements largeAlfred's wars against Viking raiders, the Norman conquest, religious vagaries and persecutionsand smallthe communal repair of a pool, the naming of an ox, and quarrels from one generation that bring prosperity or death to succeeding ones. Similar to Edward Rutherfurd's Sarum (LJ 9/15/87), another novel of England, this is more lyrical and compact. Highly recommended. Cynthia Johnson Wheal ler, Cary Memorial Lib., Lexington, Mass.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Tale Of One Small Location In A Nation's Greater History Jan. 8 2008
By Dai-keag-ity - Published on Amazon.com
A good book about an easily overlooked microcosmic place in the English landscape, and all that transpires there over many centuries from pre-history to Elizabethan times. A dense story unfolds here but not a heavy one. This book should have gotten more critical attention and sales than it did, because it's worthy to be among some of the more well known titles in the fictional history genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Am England March 4 2006
By Sammy Madison - Published on Amazon.com
If you enjoyed Sarum, you will love I Am England and its sequel, That Near and Distant Place. These books are both fun and easy to read, and a great way to learn more about English history. These books also remind me of Rudyard Kipling's Puck of Pook's Hill and Rewards and Fairies.
