For anyone interested in exploring the coast and finding little known coves and harbours (even without a particular interest in fishing boats) Stewart Lenton's Fishing Boats & Ports Books are all subtitled 'An Alternative Way to Explore'. The writer/photographer and his wife found that covering the coast from one fishing haven to the next was such a stimulating way of getting to know an area that they hoped that readers would be prompted to do likewise, and make their own interesting discoveries.
The books in this series are -
For inexpensive presents-
Why not give that person who always wants to know 'Why?' Stewart Lenton's very popular little booklet with a long title
'What is the Meaning of the Letters and Numbers on Fishing Boats?'
For a slightly 'quirky' approach to life in fishing communities in past times and some re-telling of traditional stories as seen through the eyes of some time travelling cats - and we all know someone who loves anything to do with cats....
'TT Cats and their Fishing Families' by Liz Lenton might also be a standby book for Grandma or Grandpa to have to read a section at a time to their grand children. Otherwise it is a book that can be read by 'children' from 9-90 years of age!
