The Further Adventures Of Mr. Verdant Green

Author:

Cuthbert Bede

Synopsis:

Having emerged from his baptism of fire as an Oxford Freshman, Mr. Verdant Green returns to the University, (endearingly) optimistic, (somewhat) experienced, and (very slightly) less credulous. Gleefully ready to hoax the new student blood in his turn, he fancies himself now a man of the world, wise in the ways of college life. Yet, despite his status as a veteran of one term, our hero still finds himself no less vulnerable to fetching up in scrapes - occasioned by overambitious horses, oversized cigars, and pugilistic conflicts between Town and Gown...
