From the Publisher

Inspired by a series of walks around the 186-mile Pembrokeshire coastal path in West Wales, which is known for its spectacular views from cliffside paths skirting the Irish sea and the Bristol Channel, this poetry compilation is deeply engaged with environmental issues. With a keen observation of human nature in the context of this beautiful coastline, these poems feature ghosts, quarries, shipwrecks, pirates, fishermen, sailors, and monuments from the past: neolithic burial sites, forts, caves, graves, and memorials. Also present are characters conjured from history, such as the “four hundred Welsh Women wearing stovepipe hats” who foiled the last invasion of Britain at Carregwastad in 1797. Through simple and compelling language, this collection is sure to appeal to poetry lovers and environmental groups alike.
