This short book gives you the basics of Welsh in an effective and efficient way, taking as little time as possible. You can use it if you're a complete beginner, or as a revision aid if you're already on the road to fluency. Or maybe if you just find yourself in a rut, and would like a bit of help moving on. The idea is simple; by spending around an hour on this book, with breaks in between chapters, you should be able to master a very simple form of Welsh.

Loved this- very helpful fast easy intro. very much recommend working both in book and audible for pronuciation and spelling. The Welsh accent speaking English is beautiful and the narrator is witty. I personally am having to go through more than once but everyone learns differently and even at that this is an excellent quick resource.

The world as we know it is ending. Evolution has reversed itself, affecting every living creature on earth. Science cannot stop the world from running backward, as woman after woman gives birth to infants that appear to be primitive species of humans. Thirty-two-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of a pair of big-hearted, open-minded Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed and uncertain as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant.

Loved this book so very much. No sugar coating, but so much sweetness. The beloved main characters, the conflict, the mix of indigenous and Catholic lore and values in a corrupt Christian dystopia- so beautiful, and so appropriate for our time. Thank you Louise Erdrich. What a great gift.
