Summary

This is Christopher Milne’s first autobiography, which was followed by Part 2—The Path through the Trees. From his much publicized childhood on Cotchford Farm to his war experiences, his marriage, and his proprietorship of a successful bookshop in a small English town, the life of the famous author’s son was one of much joy and some pain. It was also one of deep introspection. This book illuminates the shy, quiet man who was a thoughtful observer of the natural world and a gentle commentator on humankind’s relationship to it. Christopher’s writing offers an intriguing portrait of a gifted man who chose to live simply, a choice that ultimately brought him satisfaction—more than could ever come from the empty fame of being the “real” Christopher Robin.

Critic reviews

“This complete sweep of his life, with an introduction by his widow, allows the reader to see him as an introspective, independent child, certainly, but also as the husband, father, bookseller, and writer that he became. All in all, he was much more than the playmate of a bear.” ( Booklist)

Excellent

A heartfelt and honest autobiography, wonderfully written by C.R. Milne, and read with great feeling by Peter  Dennis. 

I understand now too Christopher, I promise that I do.

I hope that part two " The Path Through the Trees" will be available on audible soon.

Absolutely lovely

I have treasured the Pooh books all my life. And I feel grateful to have gotten to hear about the stories and the world from Christopher Milnes' perspective. I would recommend this book to all those who love the simple delights of roaming through the woods and discovering friends in the trees there.
