Walks in the Footsteps of Cornish Writers
non fiction book
A fascinating insight to contemporary authors and their favourite walks as well as the places that were so special to those well known writers who are no longer with us - and why they were so special.

Walks in the Footsteps of Winston Graham’s Poldark
non fiction book
Winston Graham was so good at evoking the real landscape of Cornwall, the Cornish people and the unpredictability of the Cornish weather. Feature in page turning plots and empathetic characters, and you have a winner, which the Poldark books have proved to be.

Enjoy these walks and learning more about the Poldark places, characters, and history. Each walk includes details of maps, refreshments, history, points of interest and clear directions and sketch map. What makes these walks different is their personal style, the delightful details and excellent photographs, which combine to make this a unique book to keep and pore over.

Walks in the Footsteps of Rosamunde Pilcher features eighteen walks each associated either with a places special to her or a location from her books and films. Rosamunde Pilcher was born and brought up in Lelant, Cornwall, and started writing at the age of seven in a house overlooking the Hayle estuary. Her love of Cornwall is evident in her descriptions – the sea’s varying shades of blue and green, the way it sighs and swells like a living being; her knowledge and love of the Cornish landscape and its people which is reflected in this book of carefully selected walks.
Walks in the Footsteps of Rosamunde Pilcher is a unique tribute to this writer who sadly died in February 2019. We are used to seeing German film crews bringing her stories to life on the screen, and we welcome the many visitors who come to sample Cornwall’s beauty as portrayed in her books. This book includes plenty of old Cornish houses and cafes along the routes – a book to delight all Pilcher fans, walkers and armchair travellers alike.
Books by Sue
non fiction book
It is well known that Daphne du Maurier fell in love with Fowey at the age of 18, and soon made Cornwall her home. Her life long love affair with the county is evident: no one can describe the creeks, the moors, the birds or the sea quite like her. Her deft observations of people are wry, accurate and can be frighteningly vivid.

Walks in the Footsteps of Daphne du Maurier is an unusual tribute to this great and unusual writer. Each of the 14 walks is inspired by her books, characters or places special to her. Some are famous – Frenchman’s Creek, as the setting for the novel of the same name – while others are less familiar, such as Stowe Barton near Bude – the starting point for The King’s General. Walks vary from three to seven miles, have concise directions, clear maps, and essential information: length, refreshments and places of interest.
