Dragons cherish peace, are sensitive to things that affect the balance of the earth, and have always taken pains to avoid human contact. Cavemen hunted them even though they couldnt eat them; knights sought honour by questing against them. Thus dragons retreated to the remoter corners of the world. But, as man polluted the environment and war rocked the earths stability, many dragons left the Celtic lands: one exodus took an entire species to Patagonia. Though almost never seen, if you are quiet, unassuming and have good intentions, you may just come across one. This is a beautiful gift book celebrating dragons in prose and poetry. Each of the twelve contributors has a full-colour page illustration depicting the story/ poem. A literary feast by the best poets and authors in Wales.
