A charming tale of growing up in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1940s and 50s
Terry Wilson was born in Settle, North Yorkshire in 1945. He started writing at nine years old when he won a Bournville Chocolate competition about a chocolate bean, but it has been the Yorkshire Dales and its people which has provided most of his material. He has been previously published in the Dalesman magazine and the Yorkshire Post.
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 *
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 *
