"In Tommy Makem's Secret Ireland, the beloved Irish folksinger leads the way to his favorite places in Ireland. Along the way, Makem shares his memories, his songs, and the stories he grew up with. A born storyteller, Makem brings life to Ireland's legends and history. He notices the highways and byways running quietly through beautiful, ever-changing country scenes. Makem introduces the reader to people who are warm and welcoming, their character shaped and molded through the millenia by a motley line of ancestors. He leads the way to villages alive with conversation and music, to megalithic gravesites, to the fair city of Dublin, to ancient churches where famous bards are buried, to sea blown monasteries....Makem speaks of his homeland with a love of the place and its people, and a knowledge of its historic and mythic past that is unmatched."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
