4.0 out of 5 stars T H White memoirs Nov. 7 2013
By Bruce O. Deming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like T H Whites various rambling muses of things. I read this book about 30 years ago so it is not fresh with me now.

If you enjoy his personality you likely will enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting glimpse at a younger, less mature TH White Dec 8 2012
By RCH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Similar to The Goshawk in both form and content, though much longer, England Have My Bones is a less mature work, less focused and less well-crafted. But well worth reading. At times more impetuous and less mature in his reflections, White, here, is still possessed of a wisdom impressive in a man of his (at the time, few) years. The Goshawk was written shortly after this one but not published for a dozen more years. One suspects significant revision. Either that or White grew significantly as both a writer and a man in those few years. At any rate, buy this book, if you're a fan of T.H. White's or of fishing, shooting, flying, or field sports in general.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unpretentious, Human, and Gloriously Real June 24 2016
By Asher Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a glimpse into another time and another life written by a master of of the English language with a keen eye for humanity (and for all the little details that make a place and a time spring to life from the printed page).

It probably won't be everyone's favorite book — indeed, I doubt any book could be — but it's one of mine; an "old friend," first discovered by chance, that I turn to time and again.

If you love the outdoors, fishing, horses, airplanes, snakes, toads, and human beings, there is a good chance you'll enjoy this book. If If you dislike hunting on principle, you might not — but, on the other hand, you might try reading it anyway, as White very cogently considers his own feelings on hunting, which was (in his time and place) an activity simply expected of a person of his social standing.

Lastly, if you love the poetry of the English language, you will find this book full of glittering gems. White was a master of the medium, and his gifts are in full force here.

I've found that —England Have My Bones— really gets under my skin. Perhaps it will get under yours, too.

By Alice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I adore T.H. White and yet, this book isn't really a story. It is White's sometimes interesting, sometimes boring-as-hell notes to himself. If you are a die hard fan of the man, get the book, it reveals how he thought and tells a lot about England in the 1930s (I think I got the dates right). If you are expecting sometime more like his classic The Once and Future King or The Goshawk, forget this book.
