How Green Was My Valley is a 1939 novel by Richard Llewellyn, narrated by Huw Morgan, the main character, about his Welsh family and the mining community in which they live. The author had claimed that he based the book on his own personal experiences but this was found to be untrue after his death; Llewellyn was English-born and spent little time in Wales, though he was of Welsh descent. Llewellyn gathered material for the novel from conversations with local mining families in Gilfach Goch.

A few times in my reading life I have been so been so touched by a book that when it is over I feel a great loss and literally clasp the book to my chest like a loved-one just departed.
Some one once said, after seeing the beauty of Alaska, that he wished he had seen it as an old man, for it's magnificent beauty would surely spoil any scene he would ever see after. That's how I feel about this lovely, beautiful, wonderful book. I am afraid nothing I read will ever make me feel like this.
It's about a small coal-mining village in Wales and the people in it. The focus is on a big wonderful family that loves each other very much though they sure do have their share of trouble. The point of view is that of Huw, beginning when he is just 6 years old and going all the way to his middle age. The prose is, well, poetry. I collected my favorite bits in a list on the bag page but there are too many to fit here. Here's but a few:
"Beautiful were the days that are gone, and O, for them to be back. The mountain was green, and proud with a good covering of oak and ash, and washing his feet in a streaming river clear as the eyes of God. The winds came down with the scents of the grass and wild flowers, putting a sweetness to our noses, and taking away so that nobody could tell what beauty had been stolen, only that the winds were old robbers who took something from each grass and flower and gave it back again, and gave a little to each of us, and took it away again."

"...a tidy house, but open to the weather, and the winds had choir practice whenever they could on every side of it."

"Ceinwen was in my mind, and I kept her there as men keep libraries of rare books, seldom to be touched but happy to know you have got."

I wonder if anyone could ever write such a masterpiece again. If I ever thought I could be a writer, I don't now. I suppose I am just a reader, a proper bibliophile. With books like this, it's enough.

It is a good wholesome read. If you are expecting action then you are in the wrong book. But a lot does happen and many issues are tackled in a interesting way. Nothing gets forced down your throat but both sides are often represented and leaves you to make up your own mind. It has good values and in many a way that we would like to live.I love the way he handled the bad teachers but without drawing to much attention to it. It reminded me that to be noble in spirit is more often the greatest act of bravery and is often the hardest type of bravery. We are all ready to fight but often lack the guts to roll with the punches and do so without letting the other party know how hard it is for us not to retort back or fight. It is inner strength that and confidence that we lack today.
I think it would make a great movie in today's world with the right director and actors.A good set work book as well as there are many points worth discussing.

I'm afraid as the book progressed I found myself losing interest. It became difficult to follow events. For example when Huw accompanies his mother to the union meeting in the depths of winter, he becomes ill with something for a long time in an accident that is never explained. We find that Huw is crippled for an unknown period of time until much later in the book the author adds as an afterthought that it was two years. Characters were sometimes hard to sort out; Huw has a brother named Gwillym but his father has the same name and occasionally it was confusing which character the author was talking about. There are characters who have very little to do with the book such as Ceridwen and whose names are very similar to others likes Ceinwen and so I kept having to reread to know for sure just which character Llewellyn was talking about. At first the use of "there is" was quaint (apparently the Welsh equivalent of "how" or "it's")but grew tiring after I read for the hundredth time, "there is beautiful" or "there is funny". But it was the characters themselves, the endless goodness of the Welsh miners that began to read like a stereotype and I grew weary of it. However I think it was the way Mr. Gruffyd the pastor was portrayed as a saint, when in fact the man had glaring faults (the vigilante justice he organizes and metes out on a man accused of killing a child) that really began to grate and made it hard to finish the book. Overall the book has a false tone to it as though written by someone who really didn't know the life of a mining family or even what it was like to be in a mine.
