A narrative of the civil war period in Lancashire, including the sieges of Lathom House, the 'massacre' at Bolton, the Battle of Preston and many other nationally important military engagements within the county.
Captures in descriptions, what it was really like trying to make a living out of a hill croft years ago. This book features a couple and their young daughter, who fresh from city life, immerse themselves in the practicalities of looking after sheep, cattle and hens, mending fences, baking bread and surviving the Scottish winters.
