  • By Mrs. Celine Anne Barrett on 6 July 2008

    I ordered this book with a fair knowledge of the subject with my father hailing from this area and having spent alot of time as an adult and child in the area and so i was half expecting some 'cheesy' travelogue type book.To say i was pleasantly surprised is a complete understatement, as this book, which is so well written and also recorded with great photographs just compells you to read on......i could not put it down and was to be honest left wanting to read even more on this type of subject.I thoroughly enjoyed it all.
