Cornwall and the Cornish, Paperback Book


Cornwall is a special place. It generates a fierce pride among its native sons and daughters, and a passionate attachment from newcomers.

Dreams of Cornwall can also inspire the Cornish overseas, descendants of nineteenth-century emigrants.

But why? "Cornwall and the Cornish" reveals the meanings of some of the places that inspire an identity with Cornwall.

It explains why Cornwall is so often viewed as a distinctive place, and where the Cornish identity comes from.
