Anthea Wodehouse has written these six imaginative little stories to show the important part both the sword and the sea have played in shaping Cornwall’s history. In each story a young boy tells of his exciting adventures, bringing to life once more some of the heroes, legends, events and people from the past. Beginning nearly two thousand years ago with the making of the bronze dagger and how it saves his life, the boy then tells of his daring rescue of Guinevere, King Arthur’s future Queen; of his life on board Black Jack’s pirate ship attacking Spanish galleons for treasure; of fighting with a giant against the Roundhead pikemen to save the King; of battling huge waves as his brother‘s ship full of precious cargo is destroyed in a storm and finally of being sent down a mine to find copper deep under ground and survive when things go badly wrong.

Anthea wrote these stories for her grandson Bertie, so that he could enjoy exploring Cornwall knowing, so much more about what happened there long ago.
