'In this collaboration with the programme makers, David Wilson embarked on a glorious photographic journey in the region: exploring abandoned farms; remote chapels; barren hills; cascading waterfalls; windswept beaches. Including on-set and behind-the-scenes photography from the Hinterland series this book is a visual celebration of Ceredigion.' Tenby Observer
