Treneer wrote in a wide range of literary forms -- poetry, essays, biography -- but it is for this trilogy that she is best known.The first volume, School House in the Wind, covers the period of Treneers early childhood in Cornwall until her teacher training in St. Austell in 1906. Cornish Years covers the middle of her career, and A Stranger in the Midlands encompasses the years between 1931 and 1947, when Treneer taught at King Edwards High School for Girls in Bermingham.School House in the Wind includes a short biography of Anne Trenner, as well as a substantial introduction and a descriptive bibliography of Trenners writings. From lovers of the English countryside to those interested in education, poetry, and womens history, this fascinating trilogy will hold great appeal.
