Stepping Stones

What a fascinating walk along a path of 100 words that illustrate the history of the English language.
The author and narrator, David Crystal takes us on a journey, pausing at each stone to look about or pick a few wildflowers within reach to illustrate or elaborate upon the key word.
I was pleased that David read his own work, he sounded just as I imagined he would, a pleasant blend of scholarliness and levity.
I'll listen to it again as there are so many interesting anecdotes that I cannot even now recall.
