Sequel. Moore returns from his epic cycle journey craving more. Endurance Bunny is a comedy true story of one man's continual drive to survive as he heads into surgery and then undertakes to cycle from St David's Head to Lowestoft. Moore finds a new cycling partner; Endurance Bunny-a completely different beast entirely. A man who is physically fit, primed to perfection, who runs a marathon before breakfast and chops down trees with his bare hands. But Moore doesn't cope well with being the unfit one, especially when forced to watch his superhuman colleague make everything look easy. Flipping between the diary of their cycle journey and his impending surgical doom, Endurance Bunny follows the exploits of a man whose body is getting older, fatter and slowly disintegrating. Moore moans about his operation, his rising blood pressure, his knackered knees and increasing weight, but this time there is nothing he can do about it-or is there? Includes daily maps, road, traffic conditions and contour.

In the 1960s, Welsh-language popular music emerged as a vehicle for mobilizing a geographically dispersed community into political action. As the decades progressed, Welsh popular music developed beyond its acoustic folk roots, adopting the various styles of contemporary popular music, and ultimately gaining the cultural self-confidence to compete in the Anglo-American mainstream market. The resulting tensions necessitate the understanding of Welsh pop as part of a much larger cultural process. By surveying the development of Welsh-language popular music from 1945-2000, 'Blerwytirhwng?' The Place of Welsh Pop Music examines those moments of crisis in Welsh cultural life which signalled a burgeoning sense of national identity, challenged paradigms of linguistic belonging, and out of which emerged new expressions of Welshness.

From the Roman invasion, through tall tales of Merlin and King Arthur, and right up to and beyond the incredible power of the mining industry, 'Wales, A Very Peculiar History' takes a quirky, sideways look at some of the slightly bizarre aspects of the home of welsh rarebit, Maelgwn the Dragon, and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Featuring the full gamut of Welsh providence from the coal-mining years to its rebirth in the 1970s, this book tells a tale of ups and downs, of hills and valleys, and of hope and triumph against the odds, with a few leeks thrown in for good measure.
