I haven't really perused this book yet--I've been reading the Kindle edition but so much Welsh was missing, I bought this also as it does have the Welsh poetry and saying.
Excellent 1860's travelogue of Wales. I've found that many of the places mentioned can still be seen on Google Earth. The single lane roads roads now are now asphalt, but the rain drainage still moves across them from the side of the hill, and in some places a brook shouldered in grass follows the "lane", just as in the book.
Ah to be in Wales with Mr. Borrow. I surely wouldn't have missed an iota of the country or the people ... wonderful. Having to read it in small increments, since r. Borrow gives 'infinite detail' to not only the countryside itself but the conversations he has along the way.
Truly wonderful travelogue.
I found this book compelling in lots of ways. I could see the wonderful scenery and feel the wind in my face. I could taste the wonderful food served to the writer as he sat in comfort in the warm cosy Inns he frequented along the way. The writer has conjured up the mystery and magic of a true Celtic country.
