Cornwall is a holiday paradise known in summer to countless thousands of families, who taste the delights of sun, sea, sand, pasties and clotted cream. For most of the rest of the year the place returns to its sleepy laid-back self as the native people and new residents alike fall back into the rhythm of the seasons. In winter it is possible to walk the spectacular landscapes in complete solitude. This book is a journey through the seasons of South Cornwall in a collection of stunning specially commissioned photographs, from the quiet calm of villages in winter, to the spring flowers on the coastal path, to the hot gardens of summer and the rich colours of autumn. Along the way, thematic sections explore Cornwall's rich traditions of archaeology, sailing, fishing and smuggling.
