Drawing from the small print of history and personal experience Charles Wood teases and warms hearts in this entertaining Somerset Quiz Book. This is an ideal companion for goggle-eyed grockles and inquisitive settlers wondering what they have let themselves in for – and a useful refresher for natives whose history, geography and just about everything else leans toward ciderous befuddlement. ‘’Tis a lovely way to whet appetites without getting too muddy,” says Charles, whose passion for scribbling snippets over his many years as a filmmaker, writer and broadcaster shines out from these quizzical pages.

From dialect delights to mystical mists, and boundary edge to good old-fashioned head scratching, this Somerset tester will earn a good degree of enlightenment. Through undiluted humour and passion Charles Wood is one of Somerset’s most outspoken defenders. He lives in Wiveliscombe, a hands-in-pocket amble away from the weasel patrols of Somerset’s western border. Illustrated by the author.
