This exquisite reissue of a 1973 work offers a window onto the people and places that shaped the life of author, scholar, critic, and apologist C.S. Lewis. In photographs and text (much in Lewis's own words) Douglas Gilbert and Clyde S. Kilby introduce such persons as his wife Joy Davidman and J.R.R. Tolkien, and take us on a grand tour of the places that meant much to Lewis: Oxford and Cambridge, as well as Devon and Cornwall in England, Wales, County Donegal in Ireland, and Scotland, where the mountains between Loch Long and Loch Lomond "seemed to me to excel all other mountains in one respect."
"This graceful marriage of words and photographs is a 'Pilgrim's Progress' of the young atheist poet who became one of the twentieth century's most imaginative theologians."—Time
