Notes From A Small Island by Bill Bryson

Notes from a Small Island is a page-turner from Bill Bryson as it follows his journey of moving back to the States and leaving behind his home town in North Yorkshire. But before he does so he takes one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of the nation's public face and private parts (as it were) and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about the country.

This captivating and moving story is based on extensive interviews with Alvarenga, his colleagues and search and rescue teams.
