Description

Whitney Brown was midway through her Master’s thesis and on track for an exciting position at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington when a chance meeting with a Welsh dry-stone waller at a folklife festival changed the course of her life. Within weeks Whitney had left behind her secure world in the States and was living with him in rural Wales, learning the craft of dry-stone walling. What started simply as a working holiday led to the swift and utter decimation of all of her previous life plans. This title mixes Whitney Brown’s extraordinary and inspiring life story with reflections on tradition, adventure, on working with one’s hands, living close to the land and, ultimately, about love in all its many forms. It is a celebration of Wales and its fascinating jumble of historical, cultural and ecological layers.
