Larada Horner-Miller

I so enjoyed this bicycle ride through Suffolk County after being there this summer. His hobby is to do rubbings on brasses in churches & cathedrals. It was written by an American soldier after WW2.

A must read for anyone who has visited and stayed in that part of England.

A 'must' read for all lovers of the idyllic Suffolk countryside. This book was written by an American serviceman during the Second World War. It follows his travels around the countryside on his bicycle visiting many a village church with his obsession for brass rubbings. It portrays Suffolk through those rose-coloured spectacles we just love to keep alive in our hearts and minds.

An American stationed in Suffolk at the end of WWII. This is a very sweet book about riding around Suffolk on a bike and his obsession with brass rubbings. This book reminds me how beautiful the Suffolk countryside is even though this book was written so long ago.

I didn't really read this, just skimmed. The Washington Post had a travel article where the author visited the sites described in this book.
