A Horse, A Boat and You


By Alice Lapworth

"Alice Lapworth is one of those who remain of a breed of people who are rapidly vanishing from among us. She was born in 1944, to a family of boat-people, in the back cabin of a horse boat at Tunstall on the Shropshire Union Canal.

In this book she explains what it was really like being a child growing up into a world of hard work and long hours, living in cramped conditions."
