Description
This engaging and colourful portrait celebrates the ancient county of Pembrokeshire. Its history is long and romantic; its landscape breath-taking and largely free from modern corruption; its abundant wildlife is carefully nurtured. The most westerly peninsula in Wales, it is remote; yet to prehistoric prospectors and restless Celtic saints, in their coracles and curraghs, it was the crossroads of the western seaways. Many of their haunting earthworks and monuments remain in the wild and mountainous Welsh-speaking north. Above all the area is praised for its magnificent coastline and offshore islands, with much of the county now designated National Park. Few people knew its legends and realities better than the author, and the candour and humour running through his writing conveys his infectious enthusiasm.
