A Place of Meadows and Tall Trees
It is 1865 and an impoverished and oppressed group of Welsh colonists set sail from the Albert Dock in Liverpool for a land allegedly flowing with milk and honey where they can build a new Wales. What they find after a devastating sea journey is a cold, South American desert already occupied by tribes of nomadic Indians, possibly intent on massacring them.
Settler Silas James soon fears he has been tricked for another man’s impossible dream. But despite his hatred of the politically adept and obsessive Edwyn Owen, and under the watchful eye of Indian shaman Yeluc, a new culture takes root as an old one passes away.
