Based in a mining village in Wales at the turn of the 19th century, How Green Was My Valley catches the impossible dilemmas that were created in society’s irreversible shift from pastoral to industrial through Huw Morgan, the youngest son of seven. Loyalty, education, economics, and manhood are examined in this pre-union tightly knit mining community. Sentimentalized with lots of atmosphere, this is a moving account of an important chapter in British history that affects every corner of the world.
