Summary

A mythology collection of 80 Welsh legends and myths, gathered from across Wales.

The Welsh, like other Celtic races, love a good story. From the time of the Mabinogion and the Black Book of Carmarthen, Welsh folk have passed dark winter nights in front of roaring fires and entertained with mythical stories.

Welsh Legends and Myths is a compendium of traditional myths, Welsh fables, Welsh fairy tales and real stories. Like other Celtic mythology, many of the myths and legends told here are based on factual events. While some have mythical roots, all are entertaining.

Siomedig iawn.

Very disappointed with this awfully read audiobook. The content seems okay but is read in such a lacklustre way that it doesn't engage the listener. This, however, is nothing compared to the awful and insulting pronunciation of Welsh names and places. Avoid.

it's much more historical snippets than legends.

really disappointed by this book, not what I expected after reading the description.
it's heavily historical, narrated in an emotionless voice. I was expecting to fund the film takes and legends and thus is not what this is.

Interesting Stories from the Land of Song

Interesting book of stories from Wales. Some pronunciations were diabolical but overall, I listened to the book to the end

Not the greatest culture for myths and legends

I've wanted this book forever but after finally getting it, it turns out the Welsh at poor storytellers. Most of the stories end disappointingly, sorry to say.
