Perhaps my favourite book in my personal library, C. Lewis Hind captures Cornwall in a way few can. This is a great guide to walking in Cornwall even today almost 100 years since it was published. The author begins his journey by walking the length of the Tamar to its source then on to & along the north coast to Land's End then right around along the south coast round the Lizard arriving eventually back at Saltash.
