This guidebook takes visitors on a tour of the remote, fictional island of Kern, located off the southwest coast of England. It offers out-of-the-way places, historical sites, a bit of solitary reverie, and a few mysteries along the way. Much of the history, geology, and wildlife mentioned is based in reality, but the rest is a close look at a wind-swept destination that only exists in the author’s imagination. Also included are excerpts of Cuddle Fish, a reflective, coming-of-age novel written by Kern’s most famous former resident, John Dunn, and set on an island very much like this one. Take a journey to Kern on these pages and in your own mind. No passport necessary.
