My 86 year old Aunt has had heaps of Fun reading this book. She's born Lancashire and married her American Air Force Officer in the 1950s .. she's lived in the USA ever since but still gets a little homesick every now and then ... Since reading this book her Lanky accent has reappeared and her Californian neighbors are having difficulty understanding what she's saying ?? Well, why not ?? A bit of a laugh and warm, fond memories are just what the Doctor ordered !!! Money well spent indeed !!!

This book is stunning for Lancastrians who don’t want to lose those glorious old dialect words, sadly now fading away. In my case being virtually brought up in a Lancs weaving shed in 1940/50s, it has brought back my heritage. Love it.

Bought this for my Daughters partner as they are moving to Lancashire, originally from Devon, to help with the dialect!!

Fabulous book. You find yourself speaking all the words out loud. Gives everyone a laugh. Very true too - words are spoken in my village and I now understand what they mean.

I truly did when I read this book. Bought for a colleague who's moving to Burnley, it's a really funny and clever little book.
