"Female Ivorites and child labour, Truck Shops and company doctors all feature in Nantybar. Developed from one woman's obsession with tracing the history of a lost village, this little book is a model for aspiring authors, and one that conveys beautifully the delight that local history generates." - Dr Eurwyn Willians, National Museum Wales
"“This really is a remarkable story thanks to the obsession of the author, a local historian, to tracing the history of a lost village.”" - www.walesunited.com/welshbooks
