Cornish history, legend, language and geography combine in this exciting fantasy to make the book as much for the classroom as for a good read. Faced by dark, magical trials against forces from other worlds and times, and having survived them in the past, John, Penny and Ben must now make an attempt to save the whole of Cornwall from disaster. Pirates; the giant of St Michael's Mount; mystic sea-caves; treasure in the Isles of Scilly; the ancient dolmens of West Cornwall; the Sea Bucca; the monstrous Morgawr and lowly Piskey; the lonely vale of a long-ago battlefield: all these and more evoke the fear, courage, adventure and sacrifice of The Tinners' Way.
