Summat fert do durin’ th’lockdeawn

Or ‘something to do during the lockdown’………

You can buy a bundle of my books on Lancashire-related themes for the combined price of just £25 including post and packing in the UK!

The titles are:

The Works (a novel about life in Horwich Loco Works and a fictitious future as a workers’ co-operative)

Lancashire’s Romantic Radical – the life and writings of Allen Clarke/Teddy Ashton (an illustrated literary and political biography of the great Lancashire writer and philosopher)

With Walt Whitman in Bolton – spirituality, sex and socialism in a Northern mill town (an illustrated history of Bolton’s amazing links with the great American poet)

The combined full price (not including P&P) would be £37.89


By Paul Salveson

He has had a varied career, mostly to do with railways, mixed in with adult education, journalism, politics and community development. After a 25 year exile he is back home in Bolton. He is a visiting professor at the Universities of Bolton and Huddersfield and chairs Bolton and South Lancs Community Rail Partnership

How do I order the three books on offer for £25? I have read the Whitman book but sent it to a Canadian poet friend as a gift- he liked it but disagrees with you on one point: Whitman’s visit to Lake Ontario. He has read Walt’s By Blue Ontario’s shore to an appreciative audience in New York.
