Review Text

  • By Rg Parsons on 18 October 2006

    Wendy Mewes' illuminating book on Brittany is a must for those who have more than a passing interest in this unique part of France. Here, the difficult and often heroic history of its fiercely independent and religious people, as they suffer the attentions of a seemingly unending queue of predators, not least amongst whom are the rich and powerful in Paris, comes alive in a very clear and compelling way.All that one needs to know about the mysterious stone structures, Brittany's close Celtic connections with Cornwall, characters such as the brutal Conomor, the clever Salomon, the valiant Bertrand, the inspirational Anne of Brittany, not to mention the turbulent and chaotic times of the Revolution, is contained in little more than a hundred pages, with copious colour photos and black and white illustrations.This is the perfect companion not only for the visitor to Brittany but also for those who simply enjoy history presented with intelligence, erudition and clarity.
