It is an ancient and magical land of captivating legends and lush beauty. For thousands of years, it has remained on the edge of empires, resisting the Romans, Vikings and, finally and famously, the British. From leprechauns to Riverdance, St. Patrick to Michael Collins, Ireland casts a spell like few other nations. A panoramic look at the personalities and events that shaped this enchanting land, A CELTIC JOURNEY THROUGH TIME is also a mesmerizing tour of its most beautiful locales, visiting the medieval streets of Dublin, the rugged coasts and the verdant countryside. From the fearsome Celts to the Williamite War, the great famine to the rise of the IRA, the haunting tapestry of Ireland's checkered past is revealed and explored. Based on Richard Killeen's acclaimed book A SHORT HISTORY OF IRELAND, this is the ultimate introduction to the Emerald Isle.
