THE ‘Search’ books of Mr. H. V. Morton have done more to spread a love for, and a knowledge of, Great Britain throughout the world than any books of the kind published in recent years. In Wales Mr. Morton, who is singularly susceptible to the Celtic atmosphere, finds a country entirely to his mind. His fascinating narrative takes the reader into the very heart of a land renowned for its romance, its history and its varied beauty. He is uniformly delightful whether he is describing a night on a mountain, a talk with a shepherd, a reverie in an ancient castle or an adventure in a coal mine. For the first time a writer has done equal justice to the agricultural North and the industrial South. The Right Hon. David Lloyd George, reviewing In Search of Wales in the Daily Herald, said:— ‘ The best travel book on Wales that I have ever read … If there were a crown for the most distinguished stranger of the year at the next Eisteddfod, I would back Morton. And I would set the crown firmly on his brow with my own hands.’1948. 273 pages , green cloth boards with gold daffodill on cover and gold writing on the spine , maps on endpapers , lightly bumped corners , dj unclipped
