Tree Dogs, Banshee Fingers & Other Irish Words for Nature
The words gathered in these pages, matched with evocative illustrations by Steve Doogan, should leave you with no uncertainty about the poetry, wisdom, divilment and insight contained within our glorious old tongue.
So says Manchán Magan in his new book ‘Tree Dogs’. This part picture book, part dictionary, part joyous frolic through the wonders of the irish language evokes a richness of wisdom and specificity that encapsulates the countryside of Ireland in all its wild beauty. Accompanied by the striking black, white and gold prints by Steve Doogan, each word comes to life and bounces off the page.
This is a book that will be enjoyed by young and old alike, by those with an interest in nature, in language and in the culture and history of this small island.
