Author Biography:
Huw Jenkins is an explorer who has thrown himself into Snowdonia life and loves to learn and recount its wondrous stories. In addition to writing for magazines such as The Countryman and Country Life he records articles for BBC Radio Wales as the community reporter for Blaenau Ffestiniog and has appeared on TV programmes such as Fishlock’s Wildtracks, My Secret Wales, Live the Dream and Y Tŷ Cymreig.

‘I’ve always been a person who sees things as half full as opposed to half empty. It’s not all doom and gloom: there is a tide of opinion gathering momentum and some really positive things happening – I just wish they would happen a bit faster.’
Huw Jenkins
