More About the Author
From the Publisher
An uplifiting tale of life in the 1920's and 1930's.
This book was written to give an insight into the life of a young boy growing up in the Yorkshire Dales during the 1920's and 1930's. It highlights the breathtaking natural beauty of the flandscape combined with the imagination of the children within it. Later, it bears witness to the rapid deterioration of family life at the loss of a father and the struggles of a child dealing with the difficulties of growing into adulthood perhaps too soon; and the start of his working life in a local mill - a harsh existence with relatively few rewards. Nevertheless this story is an uplifiting one. As the book draws to a close, the young man meets the girl of his dreams and so begins the rest of his life, the story of which is recounted in the second volume of Ernest Patchett's remarkable autobiography, "A Life Story Full Of Fun, Laughter And Some Tears" also available from The Pentland Press.
