The Penwith Peninsula in Cornwall is where the land ends. This is the story of a whole community, especially those still working the last frontier on the edge of the sea: the Cornish fishermen, dreamers and fighters who prepare daily for battle with the vast grey Atlantic. Gavin Knight brings Cornwall and its seas to life, mixing drink and drugs and sea spray, moonlit beaches and shattering storms. The result is a tapestry of the precarious reality of life in Cornwall today, emerging from behind idyllic holiday snaps and picture postcards. Even the quaint fishermen's pubs on the quay at Newlyn, including the Swordfish and its neighbour the Star, turn out to be places where squalls can blow up - and down again - in an instant, on the most dangerous stretch of the Cornish coast.
