Aiming to convey to the modern reader a sense of the rich, but hitherto little explored, tradition of English-language short-story writing by women from Wales, this collection brings together 20 stories. It travels from the industrial communities of the south to the hinterlands of the rural west and the border country of east Wales, and from different epochs in modern history to a medieval and mythological Wales. The majority of the stories included have never been republished since their first appearance in print, including one by novelist Gwyneth Vaughan that has never before appeared in print. Other contributors include Allen Raine, Dorothy Edwards, Hilda Vaughan, Brenda Chamberlain, and Margiad Evans.
