"I really enjoyed 'The History Tree' - it is a great work to put on record so much information, and a credit to all concerned."  
The project was made possible by support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the David Ross Foundation through the Land of Iron Project - and by hundreds of hours of volunteer inputs in writing, illustrating and editing the articles.

A recent purchaser said "My wife is delighted with the book. She has spent a lot of time over the past three months walking the paths and cliffs around our home territory of Ravenscar and Staintondale, and it has re-kindled her latent interest in wild flowers. Nan's book is just what she needed to broaden her knowledge. It is very comprehensive!
