Eric Jones grew up hearing stories about the Welsh settlers in Patagonia in South America, who had travelled there on a ship called the Mimosa. Their intention was to safeguard a culture and language they felt was under threat at home.

Eric is the subject of our book, Over Everest in a Balloon...And Other Adventures, which tells the story of his remarkable life.

Eric named a mountain in Patagonia after climbing it.

This lesson is one of a series we've planned to link with the book. 


Our Teaching Guide features almost fifty whole class/guided group reading lessons based on Wales and the World series one.Our Teaching Guide which features about 50 lesson plans.
