Commander, Showell: BooksReviews: 4. Legends and Myths of Wales is a delightful book that recounts some of the pre-history tales of the Welch together with some more modern legends. The stories are recounted in modern English, and have been done so by an author with a keen command of the word.

A delightful book. Read s:   Welsh Legends and Myths: 80 Myths and Legends from across Wales is very well written, researched and documented.

A great book to use as a resource for research, but could have used a little more embellishments with the fairytale aspect that a romance author might implore. Overall a very entertaining read with a documentarian s: Top 10 legendary walks in Wales. Get ready to walk in the footsteps of legends.

Summary: A collations of stories from Welsh legends and folk lore. Retold from the Mabinogion. How I find this book: Years ago, I was at a library book sale.

There a hallway with tables of books leading to a bigger room with more tables of books. I was looking at the books in the hallway and notice there were boxes of books underneath the tables. These are books from my bookshelf connected with the walk about Wales and the Welsh language, about walking historical and current, about maps and geography.

Welsh Legends and Folk Tales. Gwyn Jones. Puffin Books. / You may find the following book of poems by Welsh poet Clare Maynard of interest. You might know the 12th and 13th century lands of North Wales from their immortalisation in the much-loved Princes of Gwynedd stories. Following in their footsteps is easy and evocative, but the ruined castle of Dolwyddelan, once the fortification of Llywelyn the Great, is a must-see on the crags of North Wales.

The Welsh landscape is so beautiful that it attracts gawping visitors from all corners of the globe, including, apparently, the underworld. Legend has it that in the 11th century Satan himself. Books shelved as welsh-mythology: The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander, The Mabinogion Tetralogy by Evangeline Walton, The Castle of Llyr by Lloyd Alexan.

Jenny Nimmo is the author of The Snow Spider, the story of how a modern Welsh boy discovers he is a magician, inspired by Welsh myths and legends. A 30 th anniversary edition of the book .Yet another variation, told in The Mabinogion (a book of early Welsh stories that should be top of the list for anyone with an interest in Welsh myths and legends), focuses instead on where the dragons came from.
