(The third book in the Valley of Dreams series)
A novel by

Gordon Channer's previous books, Village by the Ford and House by the Stream, find the family with three young children leaving home and friends for the loneliness of a wild Cornish valley. Here they struggle to survive and start a very special type of holiday retreat. Wheel on the Hayle continues the saga with the family's efforts to make electricity from a water-wheel. Written with wry humour at their holiday guests strange behaviour, these books make amusing reading that you may find hard to put down. There is no crime or violence, but a touch of romance, some danger, lots of ingenuity and a love of all things natural, including some rather odd pets This is a family story not only for those who long to break away in search of a more exciting, more risky life, but for anyone who has ever gone on holiday in a caravan or tent. It is a tale all parents and grandparents will find irresistable, a true tale but written as fiction - real people and real places
