Product description

Review

As much a history of culture and place as much as it is a biography, it's a fluent look at so many things which are difficult to catch without being sentimentally nostalgic - an intelligent, moving and thoughtful account of so much that has gone. But it is also packed with information - I loved that combination. --Lee Hall

Peter Crookston's book is very remarkable. He knows the area well, and he's captured the spirit of the industry and the story of Gresford and has brought it together in a very skilled way. I think it is something that future generations will go back to, to understand the Gresford Hymn but also the industry it speaks about. A very, very remarkable book. --Tony Benn

Crookston has constructed a potent tribute...he makes you feel deeply nostalgic for a way of life that was so dangerous and so brutal. --Mail on Sunday
