I have had the great privilege of reading this book before completion and upon completion. I have had the honour of being a hands on person with this book by helping with editing and advertising. It has been a great joy to be able to do this and to know the man that has written such a moving story of a great and honourable people.

This is not your typical historical account of what went on in a sleepy little village, told by a historian. This story is told by the Coity Mt. Who better to tell the story since the mountain went through as much as the villagers?

The story begins in 1779 with the Coity Mt. looking over the village of Blaenafon. At that time it was a quiet village where everyone worked together, helped each other out and were happy with their lives.

But, that was soon to change and the Coity Mt. tells a story of how it was ripped apart and riddled with holes by man. Until 3 strangers came into the valley the villagers respected the mountain and never did any harm to it. The mountain tells of how the people's lives were so drastically changed over time, about 150 years.

This is a truly moving story about the mountain seeing its people born, grow and live. It also tells of how its people died all because of greed. It tells how it takes care of those that came to it forever. It tells of the children that are still with it that should not have come to it until they were old and grey. It tells of the now and again happiness, the sadness and the awful cruelties that went on in the village and in its self. It tells of the terrible destruction of itself, the river and the valley below.

This book is a must read that will reach every human emotion possible. You will laugh and cry with the mountain.
