Red Ike – an old novel about Cumberland

While having a meander through some searches on Google for Lake District topics, I came across an Amazon link to a favourite old novel of mine that I never knew had been reprinted: Red Ike.

First published in 1931 and reprinted in 2009, it looks back to the previous century, and it is based around Threlkeld (my home village, which appears in my own novels as ‘Linthwaite’).

  1. Read Red Ike about 40 yrs ago.You could also look for Graham Sutton books, they are a trilogy about west Cumberland, unfortunately I can’t remember the titles.
