Walks in the Footsteps of Daphne du Maurier

(Author)

Description

It is well known that Daphne du Maurier fell in love with Fowey at the age of 18, and soon made Cornwall her home. Her life long love affair with the county is evident: no one can describe the creeks, the moors, the birds or the sea quite like her. Her deft observations of people are wry, accurate and can be frighteningly vivid. Walks in the Footsteps of Daphne du Maurier is an unusual tribute to this great and unusual writer. Each of the 14 walks is inspired by her books, characters or places special to her. Some are famous - Frenchman's Creek, as the setting for the novel of the same name - while others are less familiar, such as Stowe Barton near Bude - the starting point for The King's General. Walks vary from three to seven miles, have concise directions, clear maps, and essential information: length, refreshments and places of interest.
