Twenty short stories by women writers, reflecting their realities, dreams and personal images of Wales - from the industrial communities of the south to the hinterlands of the rural west and the border country of east Wales.

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.
