Sinopsis

More than forty million people consider themselves Irish-American, and yet most of them do not truly understand the rich cultural history of their ancestors. From prehistoric times to the emigration of the Irish to Amerikay, this broad, yet comprehensive, history gives a general overview of the deep history of Irish-Americans.



The book includes such interesting topics as the four cycles of Irish storytelling, ancient Celtic legends of shapeshifting and Fair Folk, the six Gaelic languages and their relation to one another, the Gallic Wars with Julius Caesar, the Anglo-Norman invasion, the sacred ceremonies and religious beliefs of the Druids, the real story of St. Patrick, the Great Famine brought on by British involvement, the mass exodus of Irish to America, and the struggle for Irish-Americans to rebuild their lives upon new soil, in an unwelcome land.
