Bred of Heaven: One Man's Quest to Reclaim His Welsh Roots

by Jasper Rees
£8.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (2012)

Bred of Heaven: One Man Jasper Rees has always wanted to be Welsh. But despite Welsh grandparents (and a Welsh surname) he is an Englishman: by birth, upbringing and temperament.
In this singular, hilarious love letter to a glorious country so often misunderstood, Rees sets out to achieve his goal of becoming a Welshman by learning to sing, play, work, worship, think - and above all, speak - like one. On the way he meets monks, tenors and politicians, and tries his hand atrugby and lambing - all the while weaving together his personal story with Wales's rich history.
Culminating in a nail-biting test of Rees's Welsh-speaking skill at the National Eisteddfod, this exuberant journey of self-discovery celebrates the importance of national identity, and the joy of belonging.
