Greens for Caterpillars: The story of the involvement of the Green family of Lancashire in the introduction of travelling Caterpillar rides to the UK. The ride was introduced in 1923, and the Green family were involved with the operation of four of these rides from that date. The book gives details of the development of the ride, and also details of the fairs that they attended and the other rides that they opened with from the 1920s through to the 1970s. There is a detailed section on the transport used with the rides from the days of using the railways, through steam traction engines and early petrol lorries, through to more reliable diesel transport. Caterpillars are also featured at a number of amusement parks.

Over 130 black and white photos, many published for the first time.
