I really doubt that you would be able to obtain any books about the Cornish people in the mines from out of the country. I grew up there & was always told they were called "Cousin Jacks", which I assumed was because of intermarrying. Instead I discovered the term came from the expression "I have a cousin Jack who can do the job". As a child I really loved the Cornish Pasties which my mother made which was a half-circle meat & potatoe pie. All my father's family were miners & they used to smuggle gold out under the tobacco in their cans. I still have an elderly cousin who lives in Nevada City. What information would you like?
