Out Of Print ... Anyone traveling in Gwent cannot fail to be impressed by the two distinct faces the county has to offer its visitors. Enter the county from England and one enters a land of small market towns lying between the Wye and Usk, but if one crosses West over the Usk, one leaves the 'burr' of border county speech into the industrial valleys of West Gwent where three quarters of its population live in one quarter of the total area. This volume contains all the anomalies and peculiarities of life in a county of two 'countries'. It contains sections on places, castles, the saints and Holy places, people (both great and small), every day life, war and strife, the countryside and many other topics, from the earliest times to the present day. Illustrated with contemporar pictures as well as modern photographs the volume is as much a companion to the traveller as a bedside book for local readers.
