9780091940218: A Boy's Own Dale: A 1950s childhood in the Yorkshire Dales

Growing up in rural Yorkshire in the 1940s and 50s, Terry Wilson spent his school days hunting down Just William books, cutting up apples to help with fractions and staring out the window dreaming up new schemes.

But it was on the Dales themselves that Terry came into his own. Whether he was 'out-fishing' the adults with his homemade rod, grouse-beating for the lady of the manor, helping to bring in the farmers' hay in exchange for rabbit shooting rights, or growing his own prize caulis, his idiosyncratic and inventive mind is only matched by his love of nature.

Told with affection, dry humour and a respect for the landscape and its people, through Terry's eyes we meet farmers, mill owners and 'gentlemen of the road'. Beautifully illustrated with newly-commissioned line-drawn illustrations by Don Grant, A Boy's Own Dale is a magical memoir of a long-lost world.

Product Description:

Boy's Own Dale

Review:

"Terry's writing has that rare quality that can make you laugh aloud one minute and find a tear in your eye the next. He has great perception, not only of people, but of the world around him" ( Dalesman)

"Terry tells the magical story of his idyllic and enterprising childhood in the beautiful countryside near Settle in this affectionate, funny and entertaining memoir illustrated with superb line-drawings by Don Grant" ( Lancashire Evening Post)

"His love of the Dales and its people shines through every page and his recounting of boyhood scrapes will surely ring many bells" ( Choice)
