This first novel, by the distinguished author of Culture and Society, is the story of a family and their community during the present century. Matthew Price, a lecturer in London, retums to the Welsh village of Glynmawr when his father, Harry, has a stroke. In a series of flashbacks, we are shown Harry Price settling down at Glynmawr with Euen, his young wife, working in the signalbox, spending his spare time on his garden and bees. Border Country, with the slow, stubborn, honourable Harry Price at its centre, gives a picture, as profound in its implications as it is enchanttng in its descriptive details, of a coherent, gradually changing society. 351pp. Size: 8vo Large Post (8¼" x 5")
