Crygyon Kernow Ogas ha Pell –Cornish Ripples Near and Far by Ann Trevenen Jenkin.

 Published 2005 by Noonvares Press. A second poetry book. Cost £7.00. ISBN 09524601 6 5.

Cover Photo: "Rock Pool" by Philip Trevennen

The present collection has many of the same themes as A Cornish View with her roots still firmly based in Cornwall. As the title suggests, themes move from the local and particular to outside Cornwall, to the Celtic countries and to the Cornish Diaspora, with the ripples, as always, bringing her home to Kernow. Experiences are extended though some use of the Cornish language and through the effects of death or old age; but there is humour too and a readiness to laugh with the world, as well as an appreciation of the issues facing Cornwall and the concerns of a Cornish activist.

Bryallen offers a world view through Cornish poetry.   She is unique in the breadth of her vision and the depth of her roots.  Donald R. Rawe, Scryfer Lanwednock

A verse-journal of a Cornish woman in whom the culture has become inextricably linked with her character & personality. This is the verse of a frontline Cornish ambassador to many parts of the Cornish world, drinking in the gifts of Cornwall, the delights of its culture, the emotions of the landscape…Bert Biscoe, Vyajor gans Geryow.

Cornwall the Hidden Land by Richard & Ann Jenkin. 

Facsimile re-print 2005 by Noonvares Press with an additional introduction by Professor Philip Payton, and a new Cornish time-line 1965-2005 by Ann Trevenen Jenkin. ISBN:09524601 5 7.  Cost £5.00.

First Published in 1965, this book by Richard and Ann Jenkin was an early landmark in the development of the modern critical appreciation of Cornwall as a country, with its own history, culture, political and linguistic aspirations and a strong sense of Celtic identity.

This booklet was republished in 2005 with an additional introduction by Professor Philip Payton, Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter in Cornwall, and a new Cornish timeline 1965 - 2005 by the surviving author, Ann Trevenen Jenkin. This illustrates well the continued growth of a Cornish consciousness over the last forty years. It shows that Cornwall is no longer "the hidden land", though there is still an uphill path, and much to be done. It provides useful comparisons and contrasts.

Notes on the Prayerbook Rebellion  by Ann Trevenen Jenkin.

Published by Noonvares Press for teachers and others,1999.  Ring bound, at £3.00.  ISBN: 09524601 1 4.

This book is not meant to be a comprehensive history of the Cornish Prayerbook Rebellion which took place 450 years ago. However I hope it will remind both young and old of our Cornish historical past, re-empower us to understand the present and learn toleration of others, especially religious toleration so that we can look forward to our Cornish future with confidence.
