Yorkshire Fisherfolk by Peter Frank


Yorkshire Fisherfolk by Peter Frank

This fascinating book is a history of the inshore fishing communities between the Tees and the Humber. It describes the fishing seasons and boats and gear they employed and the patterns of domestic life that supported these unique societies. For centuries the knowledge which sustained the traditional culture was passed from generation to generation, but following the introduction of the internal combustion engine to fishing local memories began to fade. In the 1970s Professor Frank set about rescuing as much of that knowledge as survived and this much admired book is the result. The book is richly illustrated with photographs by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and paintings by J.R. Bagshawe.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.
