About Author

Derek Tangye (1912-1996) was the author of the much-loved books that collectively became known as 'The Minack Chronicles'. They told the story of how he and his wife Jean left behind their cosmopolitan lifestyle in London to relocate to a clifftop daffodil farm in Cornwall. There they lived in a simple cottage surrounded by their beloved animals, which featured regularly in his books. In their later years, the Tangyes bought the fields next to their cottage which are now preserved as the Minack Chronicles Nature Reserve.
