The lore and legend of the patron saint of Wales - his cult in early times and traditions that have survived him up to the present day - are the subject of this highly readable booklet by St Davids historian Nona Rees.

She shows how the stories about Saint David, Dewi Sant, relate to the peninsula of Dewisland in west Wales, where the saint was born, lived, worked and died. The Norman cathedral that stands on the site of David's first monastery is a sanctuary that still draws pilgrims from Wales and from all over the world
