The idiosyncratic and witty travelogue of a young Welsh-speaking woman who travels the globe in search of Welsh communities.
Pamela Petro has been educated at Brown, Paris and Harvard Universities; in 1983 she went to the University of Wales at Lampeter for the first time, to do her MA, returning in 1992 for intensive instruction in the Welsh language. She has since taught Welsh and travel writing in the USA. She regularly contributes to the New York Times Travel Section and to Planet, and has compiled a guide to New England. This is her first `real' book. She has, by the way, no Welsh blood.
