Wales : A Very Peculiar History Hardback
Part of the Very Peculiar History series
From Roman invasion to tall tales of Merlin and King Arthur, and right up to the power of the mining industry, "Wales - A Very Peculiar History" takes a sideways look at some of the more peculiar aspects of the home of welsh rarebit, Maelgwn the Dragon, and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
Featuring the full gamut of Welsh providence from the coal-mining years to its rebirth in the 1970s, this book tells a tale of ups and downs, of hills and valleys, and of hope and triumph against the odds, with a few leeks thrown in for good measure.
Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use.
The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings and full-colour endpapers.
