Ivver Sen

£39.99

Product description

Iver Sen is Cumbrian dialect for ever since. the title is a direct reference to the many years that hill farming has existed in the Lake District, since the early norse settlers. The book is about the people who have lived and worked the land over the years and those who cling on to their farming heritage to this day. The book tells their amazing story through Keith Richardson's words and Keith Bowen's pastel drawings.

The book relates the fascinating stories of real lakeland people and their lives and times, including brother and sister Johnny and Betty Richardson who spent an idyllic childhood at Watendlath in the early 1930's. it also goes on to tell the dramatic story of Blencathra huntsman Johnny who was captured at Tobruk in 1941 and escaped from German Prisoner of War camps in Italy to be pursued relentlessly by the Nazis across the Apennine mountain rage. After being recaptured twice he eventually made good his escape with the help of an Italian family who gave him shelter and whom he revisited 40 years after the war.

Other characters featured in the book include the legendary fell runner and farmer Joss Naylor, Jean and Derick Wilson, Dennis Monkhouse, Ronnie Cape, Barry Todhunter, Jonny Birkett , Skelt Robinson, Glenn Tubman, Victor Brownlee, Tommy Graves, Geordie Hutton and many others.

Every chapter tells a different story and provides a moving, informative, entertaining and at times humorous account of the farming way of life in Lakeland.
