A Welsh odyssey for 1976 by HARRI WEBB starring Ryan as Jenkin Jenkins III JR (and many others) and Max Boyce as the Spirit of the Valleys (and no one else)
It is the year of the Bicentennial; and all good Americans are searching for their roots. The quest brings Jenkin Jenkins III JR back to the Land of his Fathers and the ancestral seams of Jenkins-town. Community spirit is strong in the Valleys but there appears to be more than a family likeness between the returning native and the folk who greet him in those long streets.
