    I liked this Ballantyne book, but it wasn t exactly spectacular or anything I really enjoyed the main character, Oliver Trembath Trembath is a young doctor who travels to the Cornwall district in England where there are many tin mines and such You can learn much about the mines from this book There are rum smugglers in this book, speculations, and many other adventures The romance, however, was a little cheesy, unlike other Ballantyne books e.g Post Haste But, overall it was good, just not Ballantyne s best work.

    I enjoyed the book, mainly because I knew many of the places where everything took place However, there s really not much of a story, and many of the events seem to be based on historical events, which is neither good or bad A pleasant enough read, but not sure I would have enjoyed it much if I hadn t known the area.

    It focused pretty much exclusively on mining and the details of life around the Cornish mines.
