The ancient legends and ancestral legacy of the Emerald Isle.
?We will know them in the deep genetic river of our ancestry, Irish at the marrow, carrying the story in our bones, in our very bones.??from Part 4
From 3800 B.C. to the twentieth century, this comprehensive history examines the course of Irish-Americans. Celtic legends, the evolution of Christianity, the coming of the Vikings, and the time of the Tudors are just some of the topics covered in these pages. Juilene Osborne-McKnight addresses the events leading up the An Gorta Mor, or the Great Hunger, which initiated the Irish immigration to America. She then follows the Irish as they travel to the new country and establish themselves as Irish-Americans. Whimsical yet complex Celtic drawings and an annotated bibliography of recommended books and movies accent each part. The four sections are entitled ?Knock Wood and Light the Pumpkin,? ?Keeping Faith at the Cross Road,? ?No One Leaves Your Table Hungry,? and ?Irish Roots and Rising Irish.?
Inhaltsangabe: More than forty million Americans claim Irish ancestry. This lively book explains how and why they got to the U.S. and shows how their history made them who they are. From prehistoric Ireland to Irish schools in America, this well-illustrated book provides an essential overview of the ties between the Emerald Isle and the New World.
