9780140274844: Wales Epic Views of a Small Country

Jan Morris's magnificent book celebrates Wales and all things Welsh. Written as a deeply personal study, it reflects the rich bilingual literature and folklore of Wales, the buildings and wonderfully varied landscapes, the national character and humour, the historical predicaments and the political condition of this small but extraordinary country. Jan Morris is a distinguished historian as well as being one of the world's leading travel-writers. Her passionate love of Wales makes this a unique evocation.

About the Author:

Anglo-Welsh by birth, Welsh by loyalty, Jan Morris divides her time between Wales and travel abroad. She is an Honorary D.Litt. of the universities of Wales and Glamorgan, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and an Honorary FRIBA. Her other books include studies of Venice, Oxford and Spain, half a dozen works about the British Empire; a capricious biography of Admiral Lord Fisher, RN; six volumes of collected travel essays and two autobiographical volumes.
