About the Author

Simon Unwin
simonunwin The Peak District, UK

Simon Unwin was born and grew up in Sheffield. He has lived in the Peak District since 1985, for most of this period at Ashford in the Water, where he spends much of his time watching and recording the wildlife of the area. He has been a chef, a factory worker, a printer, national park ranger, nature reserve warden, writer, mountain rescue dog-handler, hill-walker and climber.
Now he’s a poet.
He drinks whisky and swears too much, but offers the excuse that life in twenty-first century Britain leaves him a lot to swear about. He is married with three children and a grand-daughter.

A delightful book full of wonderful imagery. Facepaint makes me smile everytime I read it. An education - how true. Early shift is so sad and Christmas 2009, well if this is the result I cannot be sorry.

For anyone reading this I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
