The Rhinogydd mountains are littered with the remains of human habitation that date back centuries. This book gives you a taste of the drovers' routes, old coaching roads, derelict gold mines and ancient tombs that still exist in this magnificent landscape.
Jean has explored this wild upland of Meirionnydd extensively over many years. Her passion for this unique land is evident in every photograph taken and word written.
Born in East London, Jean Napier has lived in the Snowdonia National Park since 1991 and the magnificent scenery is the main inspiration for her photography. Man’s influences on the landscape of Wales are a recurring theme in her exhibitions and photography books and her first book Rhosydd A Personal View – Golwg Bersonol (bilingual Welsh/English) depicts the remains of an old slate quarry in northern Wales with historical text.
