via an exploration of her state domestic in Wales, acclaimed commute author Jan Morris discovers the guts of her attention-grabbing state and what it ability to be Welsh. Trefan Morys, Morris's domestic among the ocean and mountains of the distant northwest nook of Wales, is the 18th-century sturdy block of her former kin condo close by. Surrounding it are the fields and outbuildings, the dust, sheep, and livestock of a operating Welsh farm.

She regards this modest development not just as a mirrored image of herself and her existence, but in addition as epitomizing the small and complicated kingdom of Wales, which has defied the area for hundreds of years to maintain its personal identification. Morris brilliantly meditates at the beams and stone partitions of the home, its jumbled contents, its sounds and scents, its stories and population, and eventually discovers the profoundest meanings of Welshness.
