In this warm, wonderfully evocative and often hilarious memoir one of the best-loved men in Britain, Alan Titchmarsh, brilliantly recalls his childhood in 1950s Yorkshire.#65533;

Alan Titchmarsh grew up, and developed his#65533; passion for nature in the wild and beautiful landscape of Yorkshire. A real treat for his millions of fans,#65533; the ever-popular presenter#65533; vividly depicts a childhood of simple pleasures like climbing trees and fishing in streams, in a time of post-war austerity. It was not a deprived childhood, yet neither was the garden eternally rosy and Alan's colourful portrait of a bygone era brings poignant moments and others that leave you aching with laughter.

Alan's sharp eye for detail brings to life various family members and their memorable quirks, as well as local characters, childhood haunts and significant events that have shaped his life.#65533;

Filled with Alan's inimitable down-to-earth humour and heart-warming tales, this memoir is guaranteed to be every bit as well-loved as Trowel and Error , which has now sold over 400,000 copies, and#65533; become a classic of childhood memoir.
