Item description for The Cornish Overseas by Philip Payton...
The story of the migration of the Cornish people throughout the world is an epic. Philip Payton is one of the world's leading scholars of the movement of Cornish people over time, both within the United Kingdom and to the major mining and agricultural districts of the world. The accessible narrative covers the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, continental South America, Mexico, Cuba and other parts of the world. The Cornish Overseas was first published in a limited hardcover edition in 1998 and is now out of print. This new high-quality paperback edition, revised and updated following new research over the last six years, will make this important work available once more. The beautifully produced book is illustrated with newly commissioned line drawings.
