A Wasdale Lad - A Pictorial History of Lakeland Farming Life
After setting the scene by introducing some forbears, "A Wasdale Lad" tells the story of growing up in West Cumberland in the late 1950s and 1960s.
The author, Rob Steele, spent his first six years on a Wasdale fell farm before tragically his father was killed on a tractor. This book tells of the life then and what followed and is illustrated with many evocative black & white photographs taken at the time. It is full of humorous tales and anecdotes that should both amuse as well as inform the reader. Recommended.
