About the Author

Witty, elegant and engaging, H. V. Morton (1892-1979) was one of the most popular travel writers of his time. After a brief period of military service he established a career as a journalist and became a reporter for both the Daily Express and the Daily Herald. H. V. Morton's debut, In Search of England, became a best seller. His genial writing style endeared him to the countless readers of the books he wrote about his travels around the British Isles, Spain, Italy and the Middle East between 1927 and 1950. In 1941 H. V. Morton attended the Atlantic Treaty meeting between President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill which established the Allied policy for post Second World War Europe and he was famously present at the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb by archaeologist Howard Carter and his team in 1922. After the Second World War, H. V. Morton emigrated to South Africa where he lived until his death.

Reviews

" 'The master of his genre, often imitated but never matched. His books are genuine classics.' Jan Morris"
