My People's Pilgrimage
Diana Gruffydd Williams Other books by Diana Gruffydd Williams
My People's Pilgrimage is the fascinating record of Diana Gruffydd Williams's family, traced from the 19th century to the present day. The story is a microcosm of the dramatic transformation of society which occurred throughout Wales, from the rural poverty of the pre-industrial agricultural labourer, to the harsh conditions of the iron and coal industries. The author's personal account is based on fact, memory, intuition and imagination. Here we see brave, extraordinary people - family members unimportant in the eyes of the world - but made larger than life through the author's revealing portraits.
