The Irish explores the lives of over forty men and women who traveled from Irish shores all over the world and played a profound role in world history. The Irish have always been great travelers, and while some folk left purely for survival, others left for different reasons - to spread faith, gain wealth, or for adventure. Since 1800 around 10 million people have left Ireland and there are about 80 million worldwide with Irish heritage. 

Told through the life stories of missionaries, explorers, philanthropists, inventors, Indentured slaves, slave owners, composers, doctors, soldiers, and assassins, this entertaining read gives a broader perspective on Irish emigration and our impact on the international stage, be it positive or negative. 

Check out the rest of our gifts for those who love their popular culture books.
