From the cover: Moors and monasteries, choral singing and cricket, brass bands and the Brontes, chalk cliffs and cheese-makers the story of Yorkshire embraces all these elements and more. And who better to guide us through the many faces of this most beautiful region than that quintessential Yorkshireman, Fred Trueman?
Written in 1984, Fred Truemans Yorkshire, the legendary cricketers personal snapshot of the county he loves, is at once travelogue, history book and county diary.
Here, Truemans work is reproduced in condensed form, though with none of his earthy Yorkshire wit and acute observation lost from the mix. His text is boosted by informative features that shed light on the areas history, local crafts, wildlife and more. Preceding Fred Truemans Yorkshire is a specially commissioned introduction, and rounding things off is a helpful Highlights section and map, pointing readers inspired to visit the region in the direction of its most outstanding sites and attractions.
