Historian (U. Colleges of Swansea and Aberystwyth) turned writer and broadcaster, Davies traces the human impact on the land from earliest times to the present. Weaving his narrative among mostly color illustrations, he centers each chronological chapter on an important event of the period, such as the advent of farming, the Normans, the first industrial era, and war and depression. The 1996 cloth edition was selected by the Book of the Month Club. It was published in conjunction with Cadw, the agency overseeing Welsh historical monuments.
