    Call Me Sister!: District Nursing Tales From The Swinging Sixties
    Jane Yeadon - Paperback - Black & White Publishing
    Who'd have thought a missing bacon rasher and a teaspoon would play a part in advancing someone's career? It's the late '60s and Jane Yeadon has always wanted to be a district nurse. Staff nursing in a ward where she's challenged by an inventory-driven ward sister, she reckons it's time to swap such trivialities for life as a district nurse. Independent thinking is one thing, but Jane's about to find that the drama on district can demand instant reaction; and without hospital back up, she's ususally the one having to provide it.

  • Cover scan of Coast To Coast In The 1920s
    Coast To Coast In The 1920s: A Tour From St. Bees Head To Robin Hood's Bay In Old Photographs
    Neil Honeyman - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    192 miles from West Cumbria to North Yorkshire, the Coast to Coast Walk was first described by Wainwright in 1973. This book, by postcard collector Neil Honeyman, came about when he did the walk in memory of his late father who completed it in 2006 at the age of 83. Rather than write just another guide to the route, Neil has adopted the slightly weird approach of describing the walk as it might have been in the 1920s and illustrating it with contemporary postcards that could have been bought along the route.

    Creation Stories: Riots, Raves And Running A Label
    Alan McGee - Paperback - Pan Books
    Alan McGee's role in shaping British culture over the past 30 years is hard to overstate. As founder of Creation Records he brought us the music that defined an era. A charismatic Glaswegian who partied just as hard as any of the bands on his notoriously dissolute label, he became a star himself. In 'Creation Stories' he tells his story for the first time, from leaving school at 16 to setting up the Living Room club in London, which showcased many emerging indie bands, from managing The Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation when he was only 23.

    Crog
    Amanda Mitchison - Hardback - Doubleday Children's
    When Wilf sees the small, gold-rimmed wooden bowl in the local museum, he's not sure why he's so drawn to it - but something about the bowl has him mesmerized, and he just has to take it. Leaving the museum with the bowl under his jacket, he notices two men in dark suits heading purposefully inside, and something tells him he should make a quick exit. The next morning, when Wilf wakes up, there's a small, pale creature in his room: Crog. Dressed in brown rags, dripping mud and blood, with black stubs for teeth and a grisly rope around his neck, Crog isn't sure how he ended up here - but he knows it's because of the bowl.
