Award-winning author Wyl Menmuir’s ﬁrst venture into full-length, non-ﬁction, The Draw of the Sea, won the Roger Deakin Award from the Society of Authors. The ocean ﬁres our imagination, provides joy, solace and play but also wields immense destructive power. The book explores communities whose lives revolve around the coasts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. In the speciﬁcs of these livelihoods and their rich histories and traditions, Wyl captures the universal human connection to the sea and interweaves the story of how the sea has beckoned, consoled and restored him.
