Hoo's Who - A Century of Memories, Kathy Evans and Douglas Marsh

Published in 2008, by Running Dog Press, this book came into my collection early last year. Essentially, the book is a compilation of memories from people that either lived, or who are still living, on the Hoo Peninsula. The book contains many very detailed and personal accounts of family life on the Peninsula, but also includes interesting stories about local shops, buildings, characters and the difficulties of daily life. At 189 pages, I hoped there would be more pages to read, but I felt happy that these personal accounts, at least, will be kept for all to read and not forgotten. The ISBN for this book is '978-0-9558560-0-6'.
