The Little Book of Pembrokeshire is a highly readable guide to the history, culture, and landscape of a very special place. Dr Grigg traces Pembrokeshire’s enduring appeal, including its rich maritime heritage and diverse culture, from the folk tales of The Mabinogion to the modern surf and music festivals. The reader is taken on a tour of Pembrokeshire National Park (the UK’s only coastal park) and its remarkable topography, from enchanting islands such as Caldey and Skomer, to the ancient Preseli hills which put the stone in Stonehenge. Also highlighted is the darker side to Pembrokeshire’s tapestry, including castle kidnappings, smuggling, piracy and food riots. Meticulously researched, The Little Book of Pembrokeshire is a sensory delight for both natives and visitors.
