Subtitled - Memories of the Canal Carriers, by Robert Davies.
The men, women and children of all ages who lived and worked on the inland waterways experienced a spartan existence. They would often commence work at 4 or 5am, and carry on boating until well after dark.
This superbly researched and illustrated book is a compilation of interviews with a handful of the folk who worked the canals during the final decades of commercial canal carrying.
