He wrote this short history of his life and family just before his 90th birthday.His sister Ruth Blood, the only one of his six siblings to survive him, died in the same hospital in Blackburn, within three weeks of Williams death in 1995.

Ruths account of her early days on the farm is included in Part Two of the book.The book was edited by Williams daughter Pauline Brindle and published privately in 1993. Pauline was a keen genealogist and traced parts of the family back seven generations- the earliest record she found was that of George Dawson, born in 1659.

In Part Three of the book Pauline describes her efforts to uncover the family history and sets out some detail of her discoveries.Written originally for the interest of his family and friends the book provides insight into the life of a small farmer who lived through most of the 20th century in Lancashire.
