Spinning New Lives is an historical vel based on the true story of the people and events which created the Eighteenth Century cotton mill village of New Lanark. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Scotland, it is most famous for the works of Robert Owen, the radical social reformer. Meticulously researched, this book tells the dramatic formative years of the community. Share their personal struggles, tragedies and joys as they establish the legacy which we benefit from today. And meet the remarkable man who built the village, David Dale, possibly one of Scotland's greatest unsung heroes.
