Description

This guide is an unashamedly Welsh book about a country that has seemingly by-passed and been by-passed by world events. Yet Welsh people in America greatly influenced its Revolution, constitution, judicial system and Civil War. Wales has given the world one of its truly great 20th-century statesmen, its most successful buccaneer, its greatest pirate, the man who influenced Marx and Engels, the USA's finest president, one of the world's greatest architects and a host of eminent scientists, travellers, teachers and politicians. It provides the story of the survival of this beautiful but largely unknown land, setting out to encourage people from outside to visit and see the country, its heritage and its people, who the Japanese describe as the "gentle folk". This is the story of Wales, the hwyl and the hiraeth, its people, its ancient langauge, its landscape, its lifestyle and culture.
