This well-documented historical work focuses on the Cornish immigration to the Caribbean in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Appleby provides insight into conditions drawing men to the islands. Mining became the chief occupation of those who settled. Because of Methodism's prevalence in Cornwall, missionaries populated the islands reaching out to the English and native inhabitants. The main text presents the lives of the men residing in the islands while the appendices provide brief histories of the islands and of Methodism's rise in Cornwall. With over 750 endnotes and an extensive bibliography, Appleby provides readers with resources for further research. I received an electronic copy from the publisher through NetGalley with expectations of an honest review. In the protected ePub version I downloaded, the illustrations were distorted. It was especially annoying with maps and elongated single portraits/sketches of individuals. I do not know if the problem extends to the Kindle version and certainly hope the problem was not in the print edition. ( )
