5.0 out of 5 stars The Canal Boatmen, 1760-1914. Harry Hanson, 25 Jan. 2011
This is an invaluable book for anyone tracing their family history whose ancestors may have been canal boatmen and women during the nineteenth century, which happened to be the case regarding my own family. It gives a full account of the social attitudes and economic conditions that they lived through, and reveals that they were a very independent and hardworking community of people who played a crucial role in the industrial revolution.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone interested in transport and social conditions during the nineteenth century. It also dispels some of the romantic myths regarding canal people and their origins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viking Mersey, 11 Sept. 2010
This title opens up a much neglected area regarding the Norse settlement of the British Isles. Being of Norse descent from my Grandfather (MacLeod from the Isle of Lewis) who married a Lancashire woman (from an old Lancashire family who participated in the Norse DNA survey!), I was fascinated to discover how dense the settlement of the Wirral and South West Lancashire, along with Cumbria, actually was when the Norse Vikings were expelled from Dublin.
This is a thorough account of that period which is invaluable to our understanding of the influences that shaped the North West of England, and opens the door on further research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mersey Flats and Flatmen by Michael Stammers, 21 April 2010
Having discovered that one branch of my family were Canal Boatmen on the Leeds and Liverpool, Bridgewater and Rochdale Canals, this book has been of invaluable help in learning about their way of life, and the Canal Flats which were derived from the Mersey Sailing Flats.
My personal interest aside, the book is a fascinating record of how essential the Mersey Flats were during the industrial growth in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries period.
This book should be part of anyone's library who has an interest in sailing craft, canals, and local history of the North West.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural wisdom., 8 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This message from Satish Kumar to respect the earth and live in harmony with all living creatures is filmed on Dartmoor, where Satish Kumar finally settled. It conveys wisdom that is not to be found in the conventional attitudes prevalent in our society. But recent events have highlighted how important that message is, if as a species we want to survive into the future. I would recommend this film as essential viewing to anyone disillusioned with mainstream religions and politics, and seeking an insight into pantheist thinking.
