Eden Phillpotts on Dartmoor

By Kenneth F. Day

Liverton, Devon: Forest Publishing (2002)

Index prepared by Michael Steer

This book is intended to be the definitive record of Eden Phillpott's "Dartmoor Cycle" literature. In it, each of his novels is discussed. The author has included a memoir of his friendship with Phillpotts, and a list of topographical features (with map references) mentioned in the Cycle. As well, there is a complete dictionary of characters in the novel, many with ancient surnames that can still be found on Dartmoor. The book is also a memorial to the author's wife. Since this index has been produced primarily for the use of genealogists, the names of the fictional characters in the Cycle novels have been designated (#), (i.e.# = fictional character).
