A true story of Michael, an 10 year old Cornish boy who in 1967 watched the Torrey Canyon oil tanker being bombed. The tanker was snagged on rocks, on the seven stones reef. Michaels accounts of the devastation that followed on Cornish beaches, is harrowing. Also, his love of Trereife where he lived and Christmas trips to Mousehole to see the Christmas lights, and Myths and legends, and learning to cook pasties with his mother. Furthermore, what he experienced growing up between 1966 - 1967, a Proper Cornish Childhood is a fascinating voyage of discovery of life in 1960s Cornwall.
