The best-selling 'Lost Tribe of Everton & Scottie Road' book encouraged thousands of people to retrace their roots into the heart of one of Liverpool's most famous and historic inner city districts.

The publication commanded four reprints and inspired two major street reunions. A hugely popular history course based on the title led to the formation of an Everton Historic Society.

It is not surprising that author Ken Rogers has responded to the clamour for a second book by collating the memories sent to him by an army of 'Lost Tribe' members who were part of a remarkable exodus in the 1960's when a controversial slum clearance programme forced over 125,000 people to leave their spiritual home for new towns and sink estates on the outer limits of Liverpool.

Those families never forgot the open door heartland they left behind and their personal stories form the basis of the author's new book entitled

'Lost Tribe: The People's Memories'.


You will read about the sights, sounds and smells of the original and world famous Scotland Road with a pub on every street corner; the romantic world of the old inner city cinemas; the local seaside paradise that drew hundreds of thousands to the far banks of the River Mersey; and the bomb sites that held deadly Second World War secrets.

You will meet a highly respected doctor who drove a Morris 8 car down a Liverpool hospital corridor and find out who had the longest name ever given on a Liverpool birth certificate.

The book also reveals what happened when a circus elephant and a lion were kept overnight in an inner city stable block.

You couldn't make it up, but that is what inspired so many people to buy the original 'Lost Tribe of Everton and Scottie Road' publication.

Others stayed to experience 'High-Rise Heaven' or 'High-Rise Hell' and their story is also told in this remarkable book, written by award-winning journalist KEN ROGERS, who was brought up in the area during the slum clearance revolution and has never forgotten his boyhood roots.

He reveals how the Everton and Scottie Road districts expanded at the speed of light up 'The Hill' in the mid-19th Century, to swamp the mansions of the rich merchants who had claimed the district as their own.

This unstoppable working-class army transformed Everton's green slopes into a dense concrete jungle. Thousands of back-to-back terraced houses might have been lacking in basic amenities like baths, inside toilets and hot-running water ... But if you came from Everton or Scottie Road, shopped along 'Greaty's' famous mile, or visited the area's legendary markets, you felt as if you were part of a very special community family.

This book will take you back 'home' and make you feel proud
