Product Description

Details

Award-winning Yorkshire photographers Jennifer Robertson and Lynne Fletcher are not only hugely talented, they are also warm, witty and genuine. In fact we can't imagine anyone else who could have inspired so many of the county's most high-profile exports to give up their time to be photographed and to talk about their love of their home county. This unique book celebrates the inspirational Yorkshire men and women who are the best in their chosen field - actors, politicians, athletes, writers, musicians, historians, educators and medics. From the giants of entertainment to sporting heroes bringing home Olympic Gold, these photographs tell of Yorkshire grown achievement and success, on the national and international stage. What comes across most powerfully is that no matter how far Yorkshire men and women go, in distance or stardom, from the place of their birth, they are forever shaped by it, regularly return, and are intensely proud to belong.
