001488: Penguin Classics Series. 1987 Reprint. "Gerald of Wales, a grandson of Gerald of Windsor and the Princess Nest, was one of the most dynamic and colourful churchmen of the twelfth century. THE JOURNEY describes, in almost diary form, the mission to Wales undertaken in 1188 by Baldwin, Archbishop of Canterbury, with Gerald as his companion. His approach was encyclopedic; as well as providing us with an accurate and quite comprehensive history of events in twelfth-century Wales, the book is crammed with lively accounts of local miracles, natural prodigies, folklore of all sorts and scenic descriptions of great beauty.
