Harry Leslie Smith is a great British stalwart. A survivor of the Great Depression, a Second World War veteran, a lifelong Labour supporter and a proud Yorkshire man, his life has straddled two centuries. Now in his nineties, Leslie wanders through the streets of his youth and wonders whether anything has actually changed.
A homage to the boundless grace and resilience of the human spirit, this book interweaves memoir and polemic in a call to arms to not let the past be the future.
Smith divides his time between Yorkshire and Ontario, Canada.
