Open to All: reader reviews


“A fascinating account of the history of the YHA, beautifully written…”

“enjoyable, accessible… a “must have” for anyone with more than a passing interest in YHA…”

“a truly impressive piece of research with detailed biographies of the key players involved in this fabulous institution that has given so much pleasure to so many of us.”

“illuminates the characters, the motives and decisions behind YHA’s ‘grass roots’ led early days…”

“Duncan’s skill… has been how he has humanised the story and bought the key characters to life…”

“Interwoven with the history is Duncan’s own story of working for YHA.”
