The Red River flows through the former mining area of Camborne-Redruth in Cornwall. This was once the major metalliferous mining area of the world. As a consequence of its role in metal extracting activities it is said to be the most altered river in the U.K.. Before this the valley was inhabited from the pre-Bronze Age through the Iron Age, Roman and Medieval times up until the present day. This book covers information on all these aspects as well as the Natural History. There is also an account of noteworthy people who have lived in the valley. The book is richly illustrated with photographs, many historic and not seen before. There is a comprehensive bibliography and set of references. Paul Williams, a Cornishman. has known the area all his life. He has written an engaging and attractive book.
