Cornish waters are some of the richest fishing grounds in Britain, but they are dangerous and the fishermen who work them a hardy breed. Beyond the tourist shops and second homes of the Penwith Peninsula, this book discovers an ancient community, deeply connected to the sea, and paints a picture of their lives through the authentic voices of local characters in places such as Mousehole, St Just and St Ives - and the Swordfish and Star pubs of Newlyn's quay.
