The Brecon Beacons are sown with extraordinary stories. The woods and valleys of the region thrum with a living past. In this stunning landscape haunted castles, bottomless lakes and strange follies hold echoes of massacres, ghosts and miracles.

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are said to be sleeping away the centuries in a cave in these hills; not far away, the most famous soprano of her time built a world like a wonderland. In this collection of stories the opera star and the legendary King join a cast of drifting spirits, water sprites, warlords, soldiers, wild women, infamous tycoons and the young people of today’s Wales, their voices retelling the stories of this land.
