Publisher's Summary

In this book, the third in the series, you will find a selection of 16 legends, each of which relates to a particular place in Central Wales.

Black Bart the Pirate, Owain Glyndwr, the Red Dragon of Wales, the Five Saints, and the Red Bandits of Mawddwy are just a few of the characters you will meet in this audiobook. Learn where the Red Dragon of Wales lives today, why a Welsh pirate, who dressed like a dandy, was the most feared in the world, how the drovers travelled the land and created their own banking system, and how King Arthur destroyed the evil monster they called the Barfog. Discover the Lost Land of Wales, the Salt Smugglers of Mawddach, and the secret of the Robber's Grave.

As you listen to the legends you will be dipping into a rich Celtic culture of stories that have been told and retold over hundreds of years, keeping listeners entertained on dark winter nights when the warmth of a log fire and the flicker of flames made anything possible.

Nicely done.

Reflective of a part of my heritage. These stories speak of a Welsh history that parallels that of Ireland in many a way IMHO.
