The Henry Hughes Story



This autobiography, originally recorded in Welsh in a school notebook, is a fascinating record of Henry’s  experiences in two very different countries during a period when both were radically evolving.

‘The Henry Hughes Story’ is an illuminating social history, containing eye witness accounts of an early 19th Century Welsh iron town, life as a collier both in Wales and USA ,and then as a pioneer settler on that country’s western frontier.

This edition contains family detail provided by Henry’s American descendants, together with additional background information, notes and photographs.
