The extraordinary story of Howard's exile from Wales and his rediscovery of his homeland.

Whilst incarcerated in the United States, he met a black gangster from Chicago who told him more about Wales than he had ever known before. Once back in the United Kingdom, Marks went home to Wales, with a burning desire to know more about his roots and inspired by the belief that his ancestors included William Owen, thought to be the greatest ever Welsh smuggler, Billy the Kid and Henry Morgan, one-time leader of the 'Brethren of the Coast', one of the most powerful criminal organisations ever. This led Marks to Jamaica's north-east coast where, full of expectation, he found himself disenchanted and wanting to return to Wales.

"Celebrity names are bandied about throughout the book, and Marks has certainly met many contrasting characters and fortunes. It's effortless reading." Norma Penfold -

"A folk legend... Howard Marks has huge charisma. He sounds like Richard Burton and looks like a Rolling Stone" Daily Mail
This book tells the story of Welshman Howard Marks who has recently discovered his true Welsh identity after a notorious few decades. He was once one of the most prolific drug smugglers in the world. Now Howard Marks longs to return to discover his Welshness. He is honest and personal in his recollections of Wales. He comments on the 'journey' that he and many others have taken in the past few decades, asking 'What is Wales?'
