The international bestselling winner of the National Book Award and the basis for the Academy Award Best Picture film directed by John Ford. 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. Full of memorable characters, richly crafted language, and surprising humor, How Green Was My Valley is the first of four books chronicling Huw’s life, including the sequels Up into the Singing Mountain, Down Where the Moon is Small, and Green, Green My Valley Now. “The reader emerges from these tense pages strangely aglow with sharing the happiness of the characters . . . The simplicity of the language and its delicately strange flavor give the book added charm.” —Chicago Tribune

This book presents the story of the construction of the 17th century historical landscape used in the BBC2 television series 'Tales from the Green Valley'. On one level it is the tale of a bizarre social project carried out by some 400 muscular historians, re-enactors, international volunteers, cavers and mountain climbers. On another it provides a detailed account of the development of a valuable experimental history project with wide educational and research applications, on a minimal budget. It catalogues a unique restoration of a derelict historic farming landscape, from buildings and field boundaries to woodlands and weed patterns, and describes its current management, on a social farming basis, with livestock co-operatives and adopted orchards.

But Pauline is done with convention, and with nothing from her old life worth preserving, not even her name, she's free to become a whole new person. All she has to do is singlehandedly turn a run-down homestead into the haven she and her children need, in a town full of wagging tongues and watchful eyes. But one man is watching her with more than judgment. Pauline would never have considered his scandalous proposal in her days as an obedient, suffering wife and daughter. But "Lizzie" might dare to accept him--his love, his work, and his secrets--and wrest her story toward a happily ever after all her own. . .

Being born and brought up in Kashmir, paradise on earth, nestled in the highest and most glorious mountain range on earth, the Himalayas is indeed a reward of destiny. The landlocked valley of Kashmir has a unique history of art, culture, spirituality, food, and lifestyle, which the author weaves masterfully into a rich tapestry with his life experiences. An account of his recent visit to Kashmir in July 2016, which he calls a sentimental journey- a pilgrimage to the homeland, is captivating. It engages the reader with an intensely human journey of the life of the author in Kashmir and beyond from 1930's to the present.
