Folk Tales from the Canal Side (Paperback)Ian Douglas (author)
Twisting and turning its way through great cities and towns is the eternal navigation: a network of canals that fed the industrial growth of our country.
Nowadays we might consider our waterways a place to find peace and relaxation, but under that tranquil surface hides a turbulent past.
Storyteller and narrowboat dweller Ian Douglas has salvaged a wealth of stories from the depths. Murder and mystery, heroes and love, devils and oatcakes are all wrapped up in this wonderful book – but beware … you will never see the towpath in the same way again!

"Ian's first book was altogether a very enjoyable read, and one which caused me to frequently laugh out loud. I must say I read the entire book in one sitting. I highly recommend it!" - Linda Hollington, Editor
