Henry Williamson remains best known for his nature stories, Tarka the Otter and Salar the Salmon. A serving soldier throughout the First World War, when he was demobilised in 1919 Williamson began to learn the craft of writing, and for a brief period was a tyro journalist with the Weekly Dispatch, owned by Lord Northcliffe. The articles collected here represent the very earliest published writings of Henry Williamson, appearing in the Weekly Dispatch between July 1920 and January 1921 during his short-lived Fleet Street career. They include ‘The Country Week’ (short nature sketches) and ‘On the Road’ (a weekly column on light cars that offered occasionally somewhat dubious advice!). Williamson's fictionalised account of this period in his life appeared in The Innocent Moon (1961). First published as The Weekly Dispatch: Contributions by Henry Williamson (1920-21), the e-book has been revised, with a new introduction by John Gregory, and retitled On the Road.
