In this masterpiece of travel literature, Robert Emmett Ginna travels on foot the 350 miles from one end of Ireland to the other. His walk is filled with encounters with remarkable citizens, as colorful and various as the counties of Ireland. Weaving song, poetry, and story into his narrative, he brings to life the heroes, patriots, saints, and rogues who've shaped Ireland's culture and history. Here is Ireland as you've never seen it before.
