The emerald isle in a silver sea, where the shamrock grows and a leprechaun stands at the end of every rainbow, guarding a crock of gold, and where green hills purple in evening mist that is the breath of St. Patrick himself.  

Dublin and bustling crowds, colleens, tall church steeples, and Trinity College, guarding the Book of Kells.

Clonmacnois, burial place of kings, the Rock of Cashel where Brian Boru was crowned.  

The Blarney Stone to kiss for eloquence, the Giant's Causeway—one of the natural wonders of the world—and friendly people in a friendly land where the lakes are enchanted and the mountains fall sleep to the sea.

In this beautiful book, M. Sasek captures the charm and wonder, the mystery and delicate hues of this misty isle in the West.

This is Ireland.
