This book tells the story of Dai Morrisey, the author's father, from the end of the First World War, when he was four years old, through his childhood years to a young adult leaving the mines and starting his own business mending radios. This book gets darker at the end, when Dai hears of a series of awful mining accidents that convince him to leave the industry. This book ends with one of its most successful images - Dai plays music to the whole street to advertise his business and walks out to see his parents dancing in the middle of the road - a beautiful picture to end the story.
