Publisher: Ken Walker Publishing
For those interested in an autobiography that spans the 1930s to the 1970s, Nothing Easy will strike a special chord, portraying a boy growing up to manhood in his time and place before going off to National Service. It conjures up insight into the world of the Yorkshire Dales just before better roads opened them to the outsider. Motor racing enthusiasts will be able to follow the description of the sport-and some of the shenanigans that existed in the margins. Readers will feel compassion too, for the struggles and heartache,the yearnings and the lighter moments that make ‘Nothing Easy’an influential picture of its times.
An absolutely fantastic book. Most insightful to a diverse and colourful life. Once started I could not put the book down. An easy read, the story of his life captures you from the very start. Thank you for letting us share it. Looking forward to part two.
