Memories of Weardale: The Way It Was by Vivian Peart
A nostalgic look at a pre-WW2 childhood in Weardale, County Durham, England. Vivian Peart recalls the hard work, frugal restrictions and wonderful comraderie of colourful farming folk and tradesmen and women in the beautiful English dale in the mid-20th century. A way of life that evokes a nostalgia for simpler times when people prided themselves in looking after one another and the countryside.
