This book, a selection of folk tales, true tales, tall tales, myths, gossip, legends and memories, celebrates and honours unique Welsh stories. Some are well known, others from forgotten manuscripts or out-of-print volumes, and some are contemporary oral tales. They reflect the diverse tradition of storytelling, and the many meanings of `chwedlau'. If someone says, `Chwedl Cymraeg?' they are asking, `Do you speak Welsh?' and `Do you tell a tale in Welsh?' Here is the root of storytelling, or `chwedleua', in Wales. It is part of conversation.

This book, one to linger over and to treasure, keeps these ancient tales alive by retelling them for a new audience.
