Overview
-

A memoir of the author's childhood in a working class family within the community of a small mining village in the Welsh Valleys in the 1930s. This fascinating book brings the detail of that time, place, and culture vividly back to life and considers the influence that growing up in such an environment has had on who the author is today. "What a pleasure it is to review and recommend this book. His vivid memories of childhood and family life are interwoven with his mature observations of Welsh social life and its advantages and disadvantages. Life in a Welsh mining village in the 1930s is shown with honesty, love, and warmth."--Ninnau
