People of the Black Mountains- The Beginning

£40.00

Product description

Published in 1989. This novel is in 2 volumes:

Vol I - People of the Black Mountains - The Beginning
Vol II - People of the Black Mountains - The Eggs of the Eagle

Vol I is in good condition other than a slight dent in the front cover and a little dirt on a couple of the pages. The second page has some writing on it. The inside cover includes a map of the Black Mountains. The jacket is in good condition.

Vol II is in good condition - the pages within are clean. The second page has the previous owner's name and address on it. The jacket is in fair condition with some wear around the edges.

This proud and haunting novel is the last great work of Raymond Williams, his final testament.

Here, in one vast, breathtaking sweep is his story of the land where he was born, the land he loved and left, but could never forget - the story of the people of Wales and the borders, not over one or two generations but many thousands, from the very beginning of recorded time.

Rooted in the past yet written for the present, People of the Black Mountains is a novel unlike any other, written by one of the great men of our time: a journey in search of a buried history, following the tracks on a map that all of us can read-and walk along-today.
