5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect companion for an exile from Wales 17 July 2013
Amazon are offering the first edition of this book published in 1996. The copy I bought is the extended edition published in 2009. Cadw, quite rightly, asked John Davies to write about those extra years which include the building of the millennium stadium, the great glasshouse at the national botanical gardens and the tidying up and redevelopment of Cardiff bay. The photograph on the front cover has changed too. I have Carreg Cennen Castle bathed in evening sunlight which is the favorite castle in Wales of many people. Beautiful photographs - John Davies covers the making of Wales from the Palaeolithic period, 120,000 years BC up until the present day. The text is tightly packed with information and I know I am in the company of someone who really knows his country and is enjoying sharing his knowledge with us his readers. Many of the places I know, and there are more to see. A fine book - Amazon please forgive me for reviewing a book I did not buy from you but since 1996 there has been plenty of time for other people to do so!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Footprints on the Land 27 July 2011
By Nash Black - Published on
Beautifully illustrated and astutely written John Davis, THE MAKING OF WALES takes the reader on an armchair tour of an ancient land. The descriptions of the physical landscape, the political changes, the tearing down and the building up all combine to make a remarkable pilgrimage.
This book has many lessons for current enviornmentalists who moan and groan about the impact human occupation has on the terra ferma. Yes, man's presence does change the land, but too is man changed by the same.
An excellent book for many hours of browsing and visualizing what once may have been against what is.
Nash Black, author of SANDPRINTS OF DEATH.
