Growing up in a mining community in rural South Wales, Huw Morgan is taught many harsh lessons—at the kitchen table, at Chapel and around the pit-head. Looking back on the hardships of his early life, where difficult days are faced with courage but the valleys swell with the sound of Welsh voices, it becomes clear that there is nowhere so green as the landscape of his own memory. An immediate bestseller on publication in 1939, How Green Was My Valley quickly became one of the best-loved novels of the twentieth century. Poetic and nostalgic, it is an elegy to a lost world.
A reading copy only. Whilst the book remains in strong readable condition, the green cloth is marked and faded and there are two previous owner's signatures.
