Glyndwr's Way, named after Owain Glyndwr who led the Welsh in a rebellion against the English in the 15th century, is the third National Trail in Wales and a fitting tribute to Wales‘s greatest hero. The 132 mile (212km) Glyndwr’s Way runs from Knighton to Welshpool, where the route links with Offaís Dyke to create a 172.5 mile (277.5km) circular walk back to Knighton. The Way passes through farmland, forestry and open hill-land, following old Roman roads, drovers' roads and modern public rights of way. The route is full of interest, with varied flora and fauna and many historical sites relating to Owain Glyndwr.

The book describes the route in twelve sections, providing information on places of interest, as well as the practical facilities walkers need. The route is illustrated with OS maps. The guide also provides the historic background to Owain Glyndwr and the Welsh Revolt, and details a number of the prophecies, myths, legends and traditions surrounding him.
