The Magic Spring: My Year Learning to Be English
Richard Lewis (2005)

Atlantic Books; ISBN: 1843543079

Despairing of the fact that his English traditional roots seem non-existent, journalist Richard Lewis embarks on a search that takes him well off the beaten track - from the humble folk clubs of the Fenlands, across the Yorkshire moors via the Morris-dancing Cotswolds. With humour and a keen eye for the quirks of humanity, he proves that English traditions are still alive and finds great enjoyment from getting involved.

The unabridged audio edition will be published in July

The Magic Spring: My Year Learning to Be English

History and the Morris Dance: A Look at Morris Dancing from Its Earliest Days Until 1850
John Cutting(November 28, 2005)

Dance Books Ltd.; ISBN: 185273 108 7

This book attempts to explain Where morris came from and what it was for. From the earliest known references (1137 in Spain, 1448 in England) to the middle of the nineteenth century, morris events are listed and examined, while a parallel study looks at publications about morris, from the Puritans down to the present day. Many black and white illustrations, portraying morris or possible morris dancers, from the fourteenth century onwards are reproduced in the text.
