About the Book

It shows us how water transforms the land, feeds our eyes and illuminates our lives. ‘Water us so ubiquitous in our landscape and our legends, in our weather and our words, that there is a danger that we fail to appreciate something which is so essential, so inevitable, so vital’ (Grahame Davies). Dathliad o dir a phobol Cymru drwy farddoniaeth a ffotograffiaeth. ‘Y mae d r yn hollbresennol yn ein tirwedd a’n chwedlau, yn ein tywydd a’n geiriau, fel bod peryg inni fethu gwerthfawrogi rhywbeth mor hanfodol, mor anochel ac mor fywiol’ (Grahame Davies).

About the Author
Grahame Davies

Grahame Davies is a Welsh poet, author and lyricist, who has won numerous prizes, including the Wales Book of the Year Award. As a much-sought-after lyricist, he collaborates extensively with composers and wrote the words for the song 'Sacred Fire', which, with Sarah Class's music performed by South African soprano Pretty Yende, was one of the musical highlights of the Coronation of King Charles III in May 2023, and was described by Andrew Lloyd Webber as 'mesmerising'. .
