By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Hannah Hauxwell became famous for her frugal lifestyle in the early seventies, although fame itself brought about some much-needed changes. I had long since ceased to think about her when I saw this book at a bargain price, although I didn't buy it immediately. In the seventies, I always thought her story a bit over-hyped, especially as her lifestyle was in part her choice. I still think that, but these days I have some different perspectives on life, and some different interests, and eventually decided to buy and read the book/ It is indeed not the kind of book that would have interested me in the seventies, but it does now. Actually, this book is a reprint of a book that first appeared in 1989, which is slightly strange as an updated edition of that book was published in the early nineties. We might have expected the publisher to reprint the updated version. Still, it's the original story that mostly interests me, so I am content with that.

In such a densely populated country as England, there aren't many places that can really be called remote (a contrast to neighboring Scotland, which has plenty of such places)/ Baldersdale in the eastern Pennines must be a strong candidate for the most isolated district in England. It's not a massive distance from significant populations in Barnard Castle and Darlington, but the isolation comes from the high altitude (by English standards) and by there only being one access road, so nobody travelling by road can ever go through Baldersdale; they can only go there and go back the way they arrived. Railways skirted the area in the latter part of the 19th century and the first half of the twentieth century, but they were gone even before Beeching wielded his axe and in any case did not go through Baldersdale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed the book 30 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Hannah is an inspiration, she worked very hard and had very little but was so contented. I was humbled by her delicate nature and her acceptance of her life in the country without running water and electricity. I admire her very much and hope she enjoyed some relative luxury in later years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seasons of My Life 17 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this rating because I felt this book was not quite as captivating as the Hannah Hauxwell 80 Years in the Dales book. It repeated the other book in places which made it hard to keep interested in reading the book. I would still recommend the book to anyone interested in the Dales , perhaps leaving a short gap between reading of both books would be better.
