"More than three centuries before Christopher Columbus arrived in the New World, an obscure Welsh prince is believed to have landed in Mobile Bay. The most compelling evidence lies in the frequent reports of English and French explorers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, saying that they met Indians whowere light-skinned, had beards, and spoke the Welsh language. Hearing thes e accounts, one Welshman came to America, just to search for his kinsmen, the Welsh Indians. He said he did not find them, but he may have lied - for Spanish gold. The artist George Catlin, said that he did find them, and left pictorial, and other, testimony. Here, thoroughly researched and documented, is a setting forth of the evidence, pro and con, for Prince Madog's voyage and the existence of the Welsh Indians. Was it all just myth or legend?Or did it really happen?" - from the dj. Chapters : 1. A King Dies; 2. A P rince Sails West; 3. Welsh Indians?; 4. Plans to Investigate; 5.
