A View Across the Valley
Twenty short stories by women writers
This rich and diverse collection provides an opportunity for the modern reader to discover a lost tradition of English-language storytelling by women from Wales, for most of the stories it includes have never been republished since their first appearance in print. As well as being entertaining - and often moving - in themselves, the stories demonstrate how late nineteenth and early twentieth century women contributed to the development of Welsh culture and identity, although their contribution has since been forgotten. This volume also includes a general introduction, and biographical and textual notes on each author and text, by the editor, Jane Aaron, a renowned expert on Welsh women's writing.
