"First published in June 1939, this autobiography became an instant bestseller and catapulted its author, B. L. Coombes, into the front rank of proletarian writers. Coombes, an English-born migrant, had lived in the Vale of Neath since before World War I, but only turned to writing in the 1930s as a way of communicating the plight of the miners and their communities to the wider world. The result is a work that has been recognized for more than 60 years as a classic miner's autobiography. In this new edition, a scholarly introduction and textual notes accompany the original story."
