In tribute to the memory of Derek Tangye, THE WORLD OF FOREVER selects some of his best writing from the nineteen volumes of autobiography that for so long inspired thousands of readers around the world. This anthology conveys the essence of the story of the life Derek and Jeannie loved so much, from the first moment they saw Minack to the foundation of the Trust which ensures the preservation of their cliff-top land. Arranged thematically, the quotations capture the wild beauty of the quiet Cornish meadows and the Tangyes' delight in the small pleasures of a life at one with nature.
