"Even Hannibal himself wou'd have found it impossible to have match'd his army over Snowden" Daniel de Foe, A tour thro' the whole island of Great Britain... 1924 "It would be the height of ingratitude to find fault with any thing, where kindness and humanity were so predominant." Mary Morgan, A tour to Milford Haven, in the year 1791. "At Holly well they speake Welsh; the inhabitants go barefoote and bare leg'd - a nasty sort of people. Their meate is very small here, Mutton is noe bigger than Little Lamb, what of it there is was sweete; their wine good being Neare ye Sea side, and are well provided with ffish - very good Salmon and Eeles and other ffish I had at Harding." Celia Fiennes, Through England on a Side Saddle, 1698 David Lloyd Owen introduces us to the fascinating breadth of travellers' tales from a mysterious and absorbing country: writers who described a land of mountains and valleys, ruined castles, and abandoned monasteries, and give us tales of strange locals who spoke another language and were known as the Welsh. A Wilder Wales highlights the astonishing transformation of Wales from a poor rural backwater to the crucible of the industrial revolution and offers readers an insight into the ways in which outsiders viewed the land and its people.
