The story of Ireland has been wrapped in mythology and legend; it is the history of courage, betrayal, and struggle. Since its very origins, the island has become the home for a successive series of invaders--the Celts, Christians, Vikings, and Normans. And despite deprivation, desperation, and suppression, Ireland has developed an unwavering sense of purpose and place, and has inspired some of the finest literature in any era from the intricateBook of Kellsto Joyce'sUlysses. This book celebrates Ireland's beauty and resiliency.
