Description - Cambridgeshire by Robert Halliday

Robert Halliday's new book about "Cambridgeshire" (also including the old county of Huntingdonshire and the city of Peterborough) illustrates and describes people, places and incidents that are unusual, odd or extraordinary. We discover the truth behind "Hereward the Wake", the story about the originator of the expression 'Hobson's Choice', a woman who spent nine days trapped in a snow cave, and many more tales of local characters, curious events and strange traditions. Using a range of illustrations, from old and recent photographs to maps, prints, paintings and engravings, Robert Halliday tells an entertaining story - an alternative history of "Cambridgeshire" that will fascinate residents and visitors alike.
