Description:

This book, a selection of folk tales, true tales, tall tales, myths, gossip, legends and memories, celebrates and honours unique Welsh stories. Some are well known, others from forgotten manuscripts or out-of-print volumes, and some are contemporary oral tales. They reflect the diverse tradition of storytelling, and the many meanings of chwedlau. If someone says, Chwedl Cymraeg? they are asking, Do you speak Welsh? and Do you tell a tale in Welsh? Here is the root of storytelling, or chwedleua, in Wales. It is part of conversation.This book, one to linger over and to treasure, keeps these ancient tales alive by retelling them for a new audience.
