How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn

Winner of the National Book Award in 1940 and the basis for the Academy Award Best Picture film of the same name, How Green Was My Valley is full of memorable characters, richly crafted language, and surprising humor. Huw Morgan remembers the days when his home valley was prosperous, verdant, and beautiful--before the mines came to town. The youngest son of a respectable mining family in South Wales, he is now the only one left in the valley, and his reminiscences tell the story of a family and a town both defined and ruined by the mines. Huw's story is both joyful and heartrending--a portrait of a place and a people existing now only in memory.
