What is a tradition? How does folklore develop? Who do we thank for collecting this stuff ? And what about ‘fake-lore’?This riveting book takes a deep dive into the world of Yorkshire folklore and traditions, and discovers the stories and people behind them. Covering the whole of the great county, and every day of the year, this is a history-based approach that goes beyond simply listing what happened in the past. Catherine traces origins, examines beliefs, and in doing so, has created a book that is as entertaining as it is revealing. This is popular community culture at its very best. Leeds-born Catherine Warr is a young historian with a huge personality and online presence. As someone who grew up on a council estate, she is passionate about making history available to people of all backgrounds and walks of life.
