Private Views of SnowdoniaPrivate Views of Snowdonia Landscapes shapes people. People shape landscape. And together, they have shaped this sumptuous celebration of Snowdonia's beauty and boldness. With dramatic photography by Steve Lewis, and in collaboration with the Snowdonia Society, 'Private Views of Snowdonia' features short accessible essays by thirty people who live or work in this most magical of National Parks. Some, like Kyffin Williams, Dafydd Elis Thomas and Jim Perrin, are names of national standing; others, though less celebrated, communicate an equally valid love of the land and its way of life. As Bryn Terfel, himself a man of Snowdonia, tells us in his foreword: We are privileged that they have chosen to share with us a small glimpse of what makes Snowdonia landscape and its communities a very special part of the world.

WalesWales (Country S.) Wales is a country of powerful history and striking landscape. Dramatic mountains, narrow valleys, beautiful coastlines, peaceful villages, and bustling towns all echo with the resolute identity of a nation which has survived, over the centuries, the ravages, the invasions, and the bloody battles of history. Richard Keen takes us on a fascinating journey through this beautiful and remarkable land. Steeped in a rich folklore of giants, devils, fairies, witches and ghosts, the Welsh countryside is covered with many fascinating monuments and ancient ritual sites - from neolithic burial chambers and medieval castle ramparts, to forgotten eighteenth-century gardens or the abandoned workings of a Victorian coal mine.

Welsh RailwaysWelsh Railways: A Photographer's View This wonderfully evocative album presents a selection of Alan Jarvis' best photographs, nearly all taken in Wales. Over 250 illustrations not only record the railways of Wales as they were but also lines which, alas, have long since disappeared. The images cover the period when steam was still very much alive, through to its demise, and reflect both the enthusiasm of a lover of railways and the expertise of a skilled photographer. The variety of subject matter, which includes the whole paraphernalia of the railways, from signal posts to asrchitraves and from carriages to track, coupled with the striking composition of the photographs, make every page a delight. An informative commentry places the images in their geographical and historical setting, anf the narrative is enlivened by Alan Jarviss personal recollections and anecdotes. Computer-generated maps also help to place the photographs in their geographical context.
