5.0 out of 5 stars The Matter of Wales: Epic Views of a Small Country, 24 Nov 2010

This review is from: The Matter of Wales: Epic Views of a Small Country (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book -- interesting, detailed and absorbing, with a wide range of themes. It will really bring Wales and the Welsh alive for non-Welsh people (and I suspect, for many Welsh people as well!). It's written in Jan Morris's clear, articulate and gripping narrative style, and her sheer love of the country and its people shines through.

One disadvantage for modern-day readers is that the book was written and published in the mid-80s, which makes it a little dated as regards very recent history. E.g. it predates the establishment of the Welsh Assembly by some one and a half decades. However, this should not detract from the reader's enjoyment -- I personally found it difficult to put down!
