1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
"Cripps left his native England in a ship set for Southern Rhodesia in 1900. During his time as a missionary in the British colony, he became passionate about indigenous ways, leaving him ostracized from the conservative European minority. Railing against colonial injustice, Cripps became a hero to the native population. He eventually chose a self-imposed exile from the Angelican Church, factions of which branded him a heretic and burned down the churches he had built. All the while he hid the soul-racking secret of what had driven him from England into the heart of Africa."
A poet's guide to Britain ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Introduced and selected by the poet-presenter Owen Sheers, A Poet's Guide to Britain is a major poetry anthology that ties in with the BBC series of the same name. Owen Sheers passionately believes that poems, and particularly poems of place, not only affect us as individuals, but can have the power to mark and define a collective experience - our identities, our country, our land. He has chosen six powerful poems, all personal favourites, and all poems that have become part of the way we see our landscape. The anthology follows a similar format to the BBC series itself, while also offering paper chains of poems about the landscape and nature of Britain, transcripts of contemporary poet interviews, and a short introduction to each lead poem
