Parts of America Still Untouched by Progress

Old New World


HarperCollins 165pp £19.99 order from our bookshop

Much of what Lucinda Lambton, as an English writer, has discovered for herself is what Americans raised on the East Coast have known all their lives: those enclaves of earlier cultures brought from the Old World and now better preserved in the New. For such natives, her lavishly illustrated book offers the pleasures of recognition. Others, fed only on myths about America, will be amazed by what she reveals.
