Publisher's Summary

Reaching into the past bringing to life stories of real people, those unsung heroes and heroines who have never before got to the chance to share their story - working men and women with incredible human stories. Meet a child mill worker from the 19th century; a young soldier finding himself in the battlefield of the first world war; a woman working on an outdoor market in the 1970's all through the chill of winter; a man’s desperate journey from Ireland to England in search of work in the 1920’s; the life of mine workers down through the ages; two people finding love against all the odds and across class divides hop picking in Kent; a bronze-age warrior giving up a life of battle in an attempt to find some peace; farmers feeding us down through the ages and those farm folk who first left their villages to Come Work in Our Factories three centuries ago. Our lives today were built on the toil of our ancestors, and their stories are told in this poetry collection.
