The story of George Loveless
The story of George Loveless and the Tolpuddle Martyrs by Andrew Norman
George Loveless was the leader of the farm workers who organised themselves into a union in 1834. A staunch Methodist, George Loveless was a righteous, thoughtful and god-fearing man. The book tells of his faith and of the forces that compelled him to establish a union in Tolpuddle and the sly pretext on which the authorities arrested him and his five comrades.
The book tells the story of transportation to the dreaded convict settlement of Van Diemen’s Land in Australia and his return, in triumph, to England.
Finally, we learn of George Loveless and his emigration to Canada to start a new life.
