Wales is the subject of broadcaster Jamie Owen’s daily life, but there is little time in the newsroom at the BBC to reflect on landscape, the timelessness of vistas and the history of the people who have shaped the land. Little wonder that this author, supported by a courageous film-crew, jumped at the opportunity to spend the summer wandering around Wales.

This sumptuous publication celebrates the landscape of Wales, its culture and some of its secrets. But more amusingly, it also documents the author’s attempts to milk a cow, exercise with the army and kayak under bridges.

Readers will be delighted by the discoveries to be made when roaming the Brecon Beacons, negotiating swift stretches of the Wye, trekking up Snowdon or simply gazing at the wonders of Wales from a railway carriage. The light and colours of Wales at its most glorious are captured in stunning photographs that illustrate the narrative.

This book accompanies the BBC Wales television series, Welsh Journeys.
