This is a really well researched an visually attractive book, a walking guide to the area of Mid Wales, especially the Hay on Wye Kington areas, areas that we have documentary evidence of Drover activity in the early part of the 19C and before.

The first two chapters give us a very informative and detailed account of what life was like for the Drovers,with the establishment of The first Welsh Banks, firstly with the Bank Yr Edion Ddu, The Bank of the Black Ox, set up by Drover David Jones in Llandovery in 1799, and eventually taken over by Lloyd's Bank in the early 1920.

Likewise the famous Aberystwyth Tregaron Bank, first set up in Aberystwyth in the late 1760s as Bank Yr Llong, the Ship Bank in Bridge St and eventually opening a branch in Tregaron itself in late 1809 but by the start of 1815 the bank had gone into liquidation.

Principally a Drovers bank, set up for Sheep dealers, it became known as Bank Yr Daffad Ddu,because of its use of Sheep to indicate the value of the note, one sheep for £1, Two sheep for £2 , and a Lamb for 10-.

David Williams of Llandudno, was inspired to produce his own Welsh Banknotes in 1969-1971, as a protest about Wales as the only Gold producing nation not to have its own currency.

His Cheif Treasury of Wales Ltd notes used both Sheep and a Black Ox as well as The Menai Bridge as used by the North & South Wales Bank ltd to decorate his famous notes, and many of them successfully received the Governments 1d revenue stamp indicating their mistaken acceptance by the Treasury.

The book was a present. There are few on the subject of drovers & my wife was very glad to get it. It is well presented & good value for money - very much what I was hoping for. It was delivered very quickly - very much before the promised date - which did seem a bit pessimistic
