Life in the Northern Dales – stories from a farming family by Frank Sanderson. This book has resulted from Frank’s fascination with his paternal ancestors, hill farmers from Weardale.  In 1980, armed with a tape-recorder, Frank visited his uncle Francis Joseph Sanderson at Great Holland, Essex.  Born in 1904 into a farming family at Bedburn near Hamsterley, Frank’s unclde had an amazing memory, retelling stories he’d heard in his childhood of events as long ago as the 1830s.  His reminiscences about lives and times long departed are at the heart of the book.  £10.99 + P&P = £14.00.
