Road to the Dales
The Story of A Yorkshire LadLarge Print - 2010
Renowned for his charming and hilarious tales of life as a teacher and school inspector, Gervase Phinn gives us a unique window into his own childhood, growing up in a pre-war, shiny, red-brick house (with an inside toilet) on Richard Road in Rotherham. Gervase tells of a life full of happiness, conversation, music and books shared with his three siblings, mother and father. With a wicked ear for the comical, and a sharp eye for detail, this beautifully written book is a snapshot of growing up in Yorkshire in the 1950s.
