George Borrow's Wild Wales has become a much loved classic since its author first noted his experiences of picturesque Wales in the middle of the nineteenth century. In this accessible modern interpretation of the landscapes and towns that Borrow recorded, Hugh Olliff offers a highly readable synopsis of the people and places that Borrow saw on his travels. The text is accompanied by numerous colour illustrations of the places he visited, along with modern photographs of them as they are today. A fascinating reconstruction of 'Wild Wales' then and now, this attractively designed and generously illustrated book will make a beautiful gift for anyone interested in the dramatic landscapes of Wales.
