Illustrated with B&W photographs. Catherine Cookson was born in 1906 into the bleak industrial heartland of Tyneside, and rose to become one of the most successful novelists of all time. Life on the south bank of the Tyne was hard, often cruel, vicious and rough; and for Catherine and her unmarried mother, doubly so. In Catherine Cookson Country she returns to her homeland, the landscape which provides the setting for her novels. And in the company of her best-loved fictional characters she rediscovers its human contours: the feelings, emotions and fiercely held passions which inspired her as woman and writer.
