Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Preston Doug and Anne Moller lived for twelve years in Rockhall Cottage, a castle-like dwelling built on to a cave at the foot of the Roaches, a famous millstone grit outcrop over a thousand feet up in the southern Pennines. They battled against the elements, against an invasion of tourists and against a series of bureaucrats to remain in their home in living conditions unimaginable to normal society in late twentieth-century Britain. "The Wars of the Roaches" is a real-life adventure story, complete with the poems and artworks and an extensive photographic record of one of the most unusual individuals living in Britain today. This rare paperback is in mediocre condition. Bottom-right corner is dog-eared. Some creases along the spine. Moderate shelf wear to edges of cover. Moderate foxing (brown spots) to the edges of the book block. However, pages are clean and white throughout. The front flyleaf has been signed in blue ink by the author. Beneath this, a message from a previous owner in black ink. See Oxfam website for delivery information
