A lavishly illustrated companion to Winston Graham's beloved Poldark novels, reissued to coincide with the BBC series based on the novels. Graham's saga of Cornish life in the eighteenth century has enthralled readers throughout the world for seventy years and the wild landscapes that inspired the novels have - even today - remained relatively unchanged. Cornwall then was a perilous world of pirates and shipwrecks: of rugged coast and mysterious smugglers' coves, of windswept moors and picturesque villages such as Boscastle and Port Quin, and of beaches, tin mines and churches. With an introduction by Winston Graham's son, Andrew, and illustrated with stunning photographs, Poldark's Cornwall is a glorious evocation of the land of beauty, excitement, romance and imagination that Graham loved so well.
Publishers note: The text in this edition of Poldark's Cornwall is as it was written by Winston Graham in the early 1980s. References to towns and locations in Cornwall are therefore as they were at that time and do not include recent developments. The only alterations of significance are the omission of sections substantially concerned with the filming of the two Poldark TV series in the 1970s. All the changes were made with the agreement of Winston Graham's family.
