This personal collection of memories covers the period from William’s early life in the late 1920’s early 30’s, working on farms with horses and dogs in the North Yorkshire Dales, and through to his moves to North Lancashire and to Cumbria. The book captures the life and often harsh environment of farming during the 1930’s – 40’s and focuses on the events which revolved around the special relationship he had working with horses and sheepdogs. A unique insight to a time where changes in farming were moving from horse driven to machine driven and of the local characters of that time. It’s a very personal collection, however for anyone interested in farming, horses, dogs and local history, its a real gem.
