VOICES OF RHONDDA (Rhondda Voices)
Written by Sean James Cameron
Published July 2002
ISBN-10: 0752426257 / ISBN-13: 978-0752426259

This enthralling collection of memories records life in the Rhondda valleys from the late nineteenth century onwards. Drawn from a wide variety of sources, it includes the often humorous anecdotes of everyday life from local people, notes from the diary of a surveyor prospecting for coal, and extracts from a log book from the National School. All combine to create a unique picture of how life used to be.

Accompanied by over 100 old photographs, experiences are recalled vividly; from work in the mines to celebrations and life in the valley duing wartime. A chance to reminisce for many, this valuable record of local history will offer newcomers an opportunity to understand how modern Rhondda has been shaped.
