Listen to the Land Speak
Our ancestors who lived here in Ireland centuries ago lived lives we would barely recognize. Their society praised the poets, monks, wise women, and healers who had the deepest connections to the ever-changing lands around them. Nature and its cycles were the animating forces of life in Ireland.
Can we say the same about our lives in the twenty-first century?
Writer and documentary maker Manchán Mangan explores our ancestor's links to the land around them, to the bogs, rivers, mountains, and shorelines that we can still see and visit today, but which we've lost our spiritual connection to.
This book is an insightful and poetic look at the land around us, and Manchán's prodigious skill as a storyteller is put to good use. A perfect gift for a reader of any age with a love for the language, culture, or landscapes of Ireland.
