Lancashire Living magazine - "These observational poems are thought-provokingly deep, sometimes historical, other times contemporary, and often simply laugh-out-loud funny. Exploring Lancashire’s rich industrial heritage, towns, and cities, the coast and countryside, but most of all the stories of people. The poet tells of members of his own family who once worked on canals, in cotton mills, mines, and markets of Lancashire, and some of legendary people born in the county."
Dean Fraser says “This book is dedicated to all my ancestors who hailed from Lancashire. I will dedicate a book to my Scottish ancestors some other time!”
