Trespassers! – A Tribute to Benny Rothman & All Fighters for the Freedom to Roam

267 printed pages
Originally published as three separate books ~ No Man Has A Right To Own Mountains, Connie Gartside’s Triumph and The Bicycle Frame Builder’s Apprentice ~ this is a thrilling story for children of all ages inspired by the memories of a participant in the Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932 ~ a defining moment in the struggle for the Freedom to Roam in England and Wales. Set in the early 1990s, the narrative documents the adventures of two teenage girls who continue the ongoing struggle against land thieves, sheep rustlers and an economic situation threatening their generation's prospects for obtaining work. The country was in deep recession at the time when John Major replaced Thatcher as Prime Minister. A thoroughly good read, it intricately combines historical fact with imaginative fiction, and ends with a strange and unexpected twist.

Published in support of the Working Class Movement Library in Salford – Manchester's twin city.
