Softcover. Robbery, rape, murder: over 60 terrible tales of man's cruelty and greed are related in the pages of this book. Around the River Tees and its tributaries industry blossomed and with it came the poorer working classes. Many of them were illiterate and also heavy drinkers. Domestic violence and drunken brawls were common. In a period spanning from 1799-1899 these well-researched events give an insight into the darker side of the region's history and heritage. Illus., Sources and Index. 135pp. 8vo. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
