Publisher's Comments

Dublin-native librarian Massey tells some of the traditional Irish legends, and links them to the places where they grew. Within sections on the four counties of Leinster, Munster, Connacht, and Ulster, she tells of the battle of the bulls, the birth of Ois , the finding of Étaín, the tragedy of Deirdre, and other tales. She includes glossaries of Irish names (without pronunciation guides) and of archaeological terms, and a map and directions to the sites, but no index. Photographers Jacques Le Goff and Pip Sides provide monochrome images. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
