Sometimes we have to battle through barriers to achieve our dreams.

These are the stories of men and women who fought for fairness.

From the first black footballer to appear for Wales, to the first Welsh woman to become a doctor and the slave’s daughter who worked to help others.

Inspiring stories of people who followed their hearts and made life better, not only for themselves, but for others.

The book features a bonus section on Wales' connections with slavery, helping teachers to tackle this difficult and important subject.


All the books in the Wales and the World set include chapter questions, a subject-specific poem, a timeline and a glossary, to assist learning and understanding.

Learning has never been so much fun – or this exciting!
