This fascinating book ranges over hundreds of years and thousands of miles, tracking a colourful cast of Cornish men and women who are, or should be, famous.
Sharp, irreverent, affectionate and often surprising, Maurice Smelt captures the spirit of the place and its people in a collection of pen portraits of saints, heroes and villains, from St Piran to Rick Rescorla.
If you're Cornish, or you simply love Cornwall, then this is the book for you.
