The Rebecca Rioter

First published in 1880, The Rebecca Rioter is a novel based on the notorious Rebecca Riots in south and west Wales in the early C19th. The story tells the tale of Evan Williams, a young working-class man, struggling to come to terms with the injustice and social inequalities of the world he lives in. His rebellious actions during a time of 'Agrarian discontent' have dramatic consequences, not only for himself, but inadvertently for the woman he loves.
