I finally recieved my copy of Poldark's Cornwall and The Making of Poldark. Does anyone know if The Cult of Poldark is being sold on dvd?

Welcome, James W. Yes, it's a bummer that a lot of people are having a hard time getting all of the books. I got my complete set from Amazon.com

Yes! Buy it Jim - both it and his 'Memoirs of a Private Man' are wonderful and a must for your collection. There is some crossover between the two books though....

Thank You everyone for the warm welcome.Im waiting for the first edition of Demelza to arrive as well as the book with the story,Meeting Demelza. Mrs Gimlett, we who are involved in historical re-enactment do not see our period uniforms and civilian clothing as costumes. It is a  hobby,yes, and yet it involves family,friends and work is involved. it is also a bit of an escape back to a less complicated time. We do live with the weather yet its fun!

                                    My uniforms are U.S.Army, Regiment of Riflemen, Infantry and Artillery. and lots of sewing is involved!!! Some dye their own wool and yes sometimes the dye does run! LOL!!!

         I want to order Poldarks Cornwall. What are your opinions of this book?

                                  Thanks again!

                                        Jim

Hello James and welcome. 

Look forward to hearing more from you. I have a mental picture of you dancing a stately eighteenth century measure in full costume!

Oh I know Contra - not into it myself but a lot of the young morris kids love it here, it's at all the folk festivals.....I expect everyone needed to take dance lessons for Poldark! Choreographer was Geraldine Stephenson if I remember correctly.....my partner (also a Morris dancer) calls it 'formation walking' LOL!

Or perhaps i should say Contra dancing. Its right out of Jane Austin. Did Robin and Angharad have to take dance lessons for the series?

Hi James and welcome! Are you a Morris dancer by chance? (I am....)
'Meeting Demelza' was published in a journal called Scryfa - I got mine from the Cornish Bookshop just last year so I hope you are on the right track! If not, return it and I'll let you know further details.

Hi James a warm welcome to the forum ! What car are you thinking of restoring ?

You'll always find all the Poldark books as well as nearly all of WG's other books on EBay at very reasonable prices....

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_nkw=Winston+Graham&_armrs=1&_from=R40&_ipg=

As for finding a copy of "Meeting Demelza" anywhere these days it's going to be pretty difficult however there's quite a lot of useful information in the thread below....

http://poldark.activeboard.com/t1085264/14-meeting-demelza-2003-short-story/

Hope you enjoy it all !

Ross

I learned about this site on a Poldark group on facebook,yesterday, and sighed up here.Ive read the first two books of the series,sadly B&N only stocks the first three from this publisher.

                     I remember this series as it was very popular here. Ive recently retired from the auto industry.My hobies include historical re-enactment-War of 1812,and period dancing,reading,music,film and i may soon start restoring a british sports car.

           Yesterday i also recieved my copy of Making Poldark. Our local library has a copy of the series and it is popular,(sadly the do not have the book series)

I would love to visit Cornwall perhaps next summer?
