An incredibly moving, witty, humorous and downright inspiring book! This book will sweep you away and take you on a journey with the writer, the brilliant Jasper Rees, throughout the glorious countryside of Wales as it embarks on a mission of personal discovery where so many aspects of Welsh culture are explored and described with wit and charm. The book has a wonderful blend of Welsh history interwoven with current events where we are introduced to a multiplicity of wonderful Welsh characters from sporting heroes to politicians. The book explores so many areas of Welsh culture from poetry to the wonderful and beautiful old Welsh language. This is one man's search for his own national identity which has made me laugh and it has made me cry. It is a masterpiece that has touched my life and has taught me so much. I can without question, recommend this book to anyone.
