The Waymouths: Devon Venturers

Length: 147 pages2 hours

In my innocence, I wondered why. That is how and why this book came to be written.
Who begat who is of less interest than where they lived, what they did and what they thought and believed. The story starts in the 13th Century and goes on today.

Farmers, wool traders, fishermen, ship builders, captains and owners, explorers, colonists, bankers, shop keepers, soldiers, ship insurers, industrialists, scholars and men of the Royal Navy: ordinary people who made something of their lives and still do, all over the world.
