101 Cornish Lives


by Maurice Smelt


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, 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.
