They climbed on sketchy ladders towards God, with winch and pulley hoisted hewn rock into heaven, inhabited the sky with hammers, defied gravity, deified stone, took up God's house to meet him, and came down to their suppers and small beer, every night slept, lay with their smelly wives, quarrelled and cuffed the children, lied, spat, sang, were happy, or unhappy, an.

This book is extensive and thorough. The author is extremely knowledgeable; one could not ask for a better exploration of the subject.

This book contains a great deal of pertinent information about the history, people and architecture of the English Cathedrals. I bought this book when it was out of print in hardback for twice of what it is selling for now. I was fortunate enough to take a guided tour with this author this past Fall. The book is my "bible" for England's cathedrals. The author provides you with an excellent background to see the cathedrals as the medieval people from all walks of life would have viewed it. I learned so much and was able to "see" more than the nave and choir. The English gothic cathedral is unique from the others in Europe and its story is delivered so well by Jon Cannon.

A book to be perused slowly. It has a wealth of information and insight not found in many books of this type. So curl up and let the author transport you back to a time of richness and color - of hope and doubt - of humanity and spirituality. You will come away with a new appreciation for that time in history.
