Of this lost English nature poem of the 1960s Christopher Middleton wrote: “This is the work of a young poet from Kansas who spent a year in England during 1962-63. It is a remarkable piece of work. The surprise is this: he presents an image of England, or, to be precise, of sundry English scenes, with a vividness and a strangeness beyond the reach of any English poet, and unknown, I venture to say, since the days of Blake, Calvert and Palmer, Ronald Johnson has unearthed an England which most people have forgotten.”

First published in 1967, this new edition has an afterword by Ross Hair.
