Arolwg cynhwysfawr o hanes Sir Gaerfyrddin o'r cyfnod cyn hanesyddol hyd heddiw. Sonnir am y newidiadau pwysig a'r datblygiad a fu ym mhob agwedd ar fywyd a gweithgaredd dros y canrifoedd a chyd-destunir y cyfan yn hanesyddol.

An elegantly written and comprehensive survey of the history of Carmarthenshire from prehistoric times to the present day. The formative changes and developments in all aspects of life and activity are examined and placed within a broader historical context.
This most enjoyable and reasonably-priced book is written by a native of the county, who identifies closely with the landscape and the people. Moreover, Mr Rees writes in a style refreshingly free of pretentiousness or jargon. He has researched his sources meticulously, as the footnotes and select bibliography testify, and he has summarised the salient points lucidly in a manner that will satisfy all categories of readers, be they historians or casual readers, natives or incomers.

The seven chapters, arranged chronologically, range from Prehistory to 2005, with two chapters covering the period c.1750-1914. Inevitably in a book of this immense scope, there are some errors and omissions, but it would be churlish to list them. One grave omission, however, is that of a modern map, which is why an error such as placing the Whitland forge in the parish of Llangain instead of Llanginning slipped by. Also omitted is a list of the excellent illustrations, which sadly are also left unnumbered and without links to relevant sections of the text.

Even so, the book is a classic of its kind and deserves to be on the shelves of every household and school in Carmarthenshire.
