Table of Contents:
From age to age, from locality to locality, over and over we see the same story throughout Wales. Assault, resistance, survival: this is the story that forged one country out of valleys large and small. Romans, Saxons, Norsemen, Normans and the British Empire all tried to suppress us and make Wales into a peripheral province within their larger empires. But here we still stand: independent, and telling our story with pride. Although we have been through all this as a country united, we can also celebrate smaller episodes within the sweep of history. Every mountain and lake, castle and village has its story to tell. Telling stories from all quarters feeds the country\'s heart. These stories and ballads take us to every corner of Wales, celebrating variety and weaving it all together into one volume.
