Encounters with Wainwright (Signed copies on request)

Encounters with Wainwright (Signed copies on request)

The stories range from very brief encounters to accounts from those who knew him over many years. Together they provide much new information and provide the reader with an opportunity to consider Wainwright afresh in the light of first-hand experience.

Profits from sales of this important book will go to Animal Rescue Cumbria, the charity that AW and Betty supported passionately.

"When this project was first suggested, we were delighted. Already several of the few people who knew him well were no longer alive and so it was important to capture the information from those who were. It seemed an excellent idea to add to this by showing how he had related to other people in very different ways. What has been produced has exceeded our wildest expectations. David Johnson has patiently tracked down a huge range of people with a wide variety of encounters with AW. Some of them were known to us and it is good to have these stories expanded and recorded, but many we knew nothing about and it has been particularly exciting to hear their stories and learn about the individual and sometimes unexpected ways in which AW touched their lives." (Extract from the Foreword by Jane King, on behalf of Annie Sellar, step-daughters of Alfred Wainwright)

“When David Johnson first mentioned the Encounters with Wainwright project, I knew it would be a winner. More, it would in a way set the record straight … Discover a new, more rounded Wainwright in the pages of David’s excellent book.”    Eric Robson
