In this completely revised and updated verstion of his "David Thomas: Man of Iron", Dr. Peter Williams takes us back to the days of mass Welsh emigration to the United States. The terrible conditions at home, which sparked the Chartist riots, are described, to put into context the reasons for this difficult transatlantic flight. Though David Thomas's correspondence with .Wales, Dr. Williams shows the Welshman's immense contribution to the industrialisation and economic growth of America.
