The masses of rock at Tintagel, Tol-Pedn, and the Lizard, the sheer drop of the High Cliff and the Dodman, the moors, the cromlechs, and the granite tors, are so impressive that we are apt to overlook the fertile valleys that intersect the country, the coves, coombes, and pills in which the hillside vegetation is often semitropical, and where the houses are embowered in flowering shrubs till they look like Jacks-in-the-Green that have taken root.Nor do these picturesque villages, sheltered and fruitful, this magnificent coast scenery, these grey moors, comprise the whole of this half-smiling, half-frowning land.

Here in out-of-the-way places are relics of forgotten creeds and peoples, earthworks, amphitheatres, castles, the caves of smugglers, and the subterranean hiding-places of neolithic man. There is so much to interest, so much to see - almost too much it would seem, certainly too much for any one holiday- but Cornwall is a place to go to again and again, to go to till it seems as your own land, and its people have forgiven you for being a foreigner.This Cornish folk, clannish but kindly, has of late years been decreasing.

Not only is there the competition of foreign tin, but the lodes being now deep the cost of home production has proportionately increased.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
