In 1885, a group of Welsh settlers in Chubut, Argentina set out to explore the Andes and found and settled Cwm Hyfryd, ""Pleasant Valley"". They were members of the largest Welsh settlement in South America, founded twenty years earlier by the passengers of the Mimosa. Actor and author Matthew Rhys joined a group of the descendants of the original Cwm Hyfryd expedition to recreate their accomplishment, on horseback as they did themselves. Rhys has published a beautiful book of his photographs and commentary on this experience: a photographic memoir of this journey by horse through the Patagonian landscape and some of its Welsh history. Rhys has included some background history of Welsh immigration to Argentina and the story of the original journey, including a few wonderful historic photos of those early settlers and the Argentina of their time. Matthew Rhys, a native of Cardiff now living in Los Angeles, has appeared in more than 30 roles for film and television, including ""Brothers and Sisters."" ""Vivid accounts o the hardships of marathon horse-riding, as well as the pleasures of Argentine asado and maté. . . Rhys's black-and-white landscapes possess a stark beauty.""Publishers Weekly

Book Description GOMER PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Bilingual edition. Language: Welsh. Brand new Book. They had been promised paradise. They discovered a desert. And after twenty backbreaking years, the Welsh settlers in Patagonia decided that enough was enough. An expedition force was sent forth west to find more fertile land in the foothills of the Andes: a 700-km, five-and-a-half-week journey on horseback. That selfsame journey was undertaken by Matthew Rhys 120 years later, and this book is the story of that journey. It is a photographic account of an unchanged yet ever changing landscape, of hardship and exhilaration, of commitment and camaraderie. Patagonia is also a celebration of that little corner of South America that is forever Wales. Seller Inventory # WBC9781848511972
