From the Airbus at Broughton to the castle at Rhuddlan; from the resorts of the coast to the International Eisteddfod at Llangollen; from the farms of the Vales to the mountains of Hiraethog; from the English of Wrexham to the Welsh of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, the county of Clwyd - the soon to disappear Clwyd - encompasses hugely differing cultures within its boundaries.

Natives and visitors, from the seventeenth century to the present day, have found Clwyd an unfailing source of inspiration. This anthology collects their writing to provide a fascinating commentary on life in the county, recording the events, the history and the people. As this century has progressed change has been the key note: agriculture has declined, collieries and steelmaking have come and gone, and tourism is the latest growth industry; religion too has declined from its medieval pre-eminence; old county towns like Denbeigh have been eclipsed by burgeoning Wrexham and Rhyl. Editor Dewi Roberts has produced an annthology which defines what it is to live in Clwyd.
