WARREN, C. Henry

Author Tags: Transient

Some of the most scathing and dismissive comments ever printed about Vancouver were made by the English essayist and travel writer C. Henry Warren in his travelogue Wild Goose Chase: Being the Journal of an Intimate Adventure into the New World.

Most of Warren's books concerned the English countryside but he was also knowledgeable about Buddhism and music. His best-known book, England is a Village, evoked the charms and benefits of life in the East Anglian village of Larkfield.
