The group was interested in the local history and cultural heritage of Yorkley, both of which they felt had been ignored, and its second publication after Remembered and Forgotten wasA Native Forester, which not only offered the first republication of the poems of Richard Morse since they were originally printed in 1839 but an exhaustive biography of the Yorkley-born self-taught freeminer-turned-poet researched and written by David with an introduction to the poet’s techniques by Chris. “A great piece of work,” wrote John Powell in the Forest Review, “beautifully written”.  Members of the Morse family were guests at the launch and poetry-reading at The Bailey Inn in Spring 2012.
