Apparently thwarted in love, Dylan trains himself alone in the craft of warfare and joins the forces of Prince Llewelyn ap. Gruffyd as a longbow-man, helping to try and drive Edward 1 (Longshanks - the English Warrior King) from their Wales. Prince Llewelyn (the last Welsh born Prince of Wales is defeated and finished in tragic circumstances and the Welsh people reel under the English and Norman restitution following the defeat. Dylan Cadwaladyr returns to Carmarthen Bay and tries to restore some semblance to his former life, under almost impossible odds for one so scarred by war.

This is a story based around the peasant population in Southern Wales in the 13th century; a story of the hardship of village life living under the Norman rule and thee efforts of the people trying to break out of the Norman's iron rule.
