This slim edition comprises three chapters, one from the original Clouded Mirror, two from the LTC Rolt autobiographies.

In these evocative and elegaic writings LTC Rolt meditates on landscape, history, poetry, steam railways, vintage cars and the endless summer days of his childhood. He also recalls his many happy boating voyages on Britainsís canals; the peace and tranquillity, the wildlife and people, the changing scenery as he travelled from county to county, and the role he played in preserving the waterways for future generations.
