5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful. 23 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this for research and found it a great little volume. It has so many anecdotes and facts about the smuggling trade in these two counties, and also puts the trade in context of what else was going on at the time. I loved the sketch-maps with each new section of the coast - for someone who isn't familiar with these areas they were really useful. And the tips on visiting each location at the end of the chapter were great. This isn't present in the companion volume about Hampshire and Dorset and I'm missing it. The writing was also accessible which made it an easy and enjoyable read. I could have done with fewer exclamation marks, but that's a minor point. If you want an introduction to the history of smuggling, this is a great place to start.
