The classic, No.1 bestselling and much-loved memoir by Hannah Hauxwell about life in remote Yorkshire in the 1970s.

'The world's favourite Daleswoman' YORKSHIRE POST

'She brings the reader back to the essentials' MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

'Hannah's humility, simplicity and strange accent - a mix of Yorkshire and Northumbrian with a Scandinavian lilt - touched many viewers ... Hannah's attachment to Low Birk Hatt remained with her for life: "My heart and soul will always be up on the Dales," 'COUNTRYFILE MAGAZINE


Hannah Hauxwell first came to the nation's attention on Yorkshire television's award-winning documentary TOO LONG A WINTER, when she captured the hearts and imaginations of millions who were captivated by her ability to single-handedly run her family's farm in an isolated area in Yorkshire. Since the age of 35, following the deaths of her parents and uncle, she lived a self-sufficient life without electricity or running water at Low Birk Hatt Farm. What most enchanted people about Hannah was that she survived sixty years of gruelling work and weather with unimpaired serenity and good humour. Her love of the countryside, her passion for animals and her appreciation of the right values make Hannah a remarkable woman and in this classic book she tells her unique and inspiring story. SEASONS OF MY LIFE is an enduring and affectionate look at rural life in a world where everything is changing.
