Black Country Sketches – Amy Lyons
First published in 1901, the 16 stories in this volume are set in the Wednesbury area about a hundred years prior to that.  Drawing from papers that came into her possession and from the extensive works of local historian FW Hackwood, Amy Lyons vividly describes the conditions, superstitions and dangers of life in the Black Country 200 years ago.
