Cwmardy, Paperback / softback Book

Cwmardy Paperback / softback

Part of the Library of Wales series


The first of Lewis Jones' two epic industrial novels of the 1930s.

Big Jim, collier and ex-Boer War soldier, and his partner Sian endure the impact of strikes, riots and war, while their son Len emerges as a sharp thinker and dynamic political organiser.

Cwmardy paints a graphic portrait of the casual exploitation, tragedy and violence as well as the political hope and humanity of South Wales industrial workers from the 1900s to the 1930s.
