    1. This book is not about our lovely Poldark from the show. There are two pictures of him in the book and one of Demelza. This is about beautiful Cornwall and Winston Graham talking about growing up there, the show and other things. There is a book about the current show and all that goes on there. I forgot the name, but it's on my wishlist =) I got this for the beautiful pictures. I'm going to be adding some of the pictures that I took from my own book. I will add the captions from the pictures. [...]


    2. Once you have fallen in love with the Poldark family, I recommend this non-fiction book written by the author of the the Poldark series. It is full of wonderful photography of Cornwall. The Durham library carries it.


    3. Poldark's Cornwall is a memoir of Winston Graham's love and life of Cornwall. He lived in Perranporth for a time and was inspired to write his Poldark series, which I love. The book is full of historical information and anecdotes of his life as well as information for the Poldark fan (of course) about places that inspired the locations in his books and the characters.Reading this book you don't just gain the urgent need to discover Cornwall for yourself but you also gain an insight into the mind [...]


    4. Beautiful photos of Cornwall, but the title was misleading---too little of the book was devoted to the Poldark novels. I was hoping to discover where Mr. Graham had set Nampara, the geographical layout in his head of the prominent manors in the novels and the towns referred to. Only a basic map on the last pages oriented one and it took determined efforts to find towns in the novels and towns photographed in the book. As so often happens with beautiful books of the type, it appears the photos ar [...]


    5. This book is a must for anyone who has fallen in love with Cornwall through Graham's books. He talks about his own experiences there and many of the features that appear directly or indirectly in the novels. I read it before I visited Cornwall for the first time, and it gave me very good direction in terms of seeking the places I wanted most to see.






    6. Lots of gorgeous photographs of Cornwall and many little tidbits related to place names and character names in the Poldark series. I often look at this book while I'm reading one of the Poldark novels just to get a better visual image of the places Graham is referring to, such as Caerhays Castle. A really nice addition to one's library if you happen to be a Poldark enthusiast.


    7. We are reading this coffee table book while visiting Cornwall. It is thoroughly enjoyable as a literary companion either before or after experiencing the actual villages, harbors, moors, beaches and coastal walks. Graham is a fine writer and the photos are gorgeous.
