  "Nobody knows Caernarfon better than Meirion Hughes. Born and bred in the town, he has spent a lifetime researching and talking to its people. In this book he deals with a broad sweep of the more off-beat aspects of the town's history. Here we have the story of a cholera epidemic when the dead were buried even on Christmas Day; the exploits of a much decorated air ace of World War I; a visit from Buffalo Bill accompanied by cowboys and Young Sitting Bull; the crossing of the Menai Straits in a hot-air balloon in 1857; an account of the last hours of a murderer, and much more. Exciting stuff!" - Glenda Carr

  "As a local historian, Meirion has an unique and friendly manner of presenting history, which makes this book highly interesting and very readable." - Glyn Tomos
