  • This is an extraordinary tour de force. Old fashioned certainly, in that it adopts a survivalist, even Darwinian approach, but a classic study based on a deep understanding of the Irish countryside and people.


  • A detailed look at everyday life in pre-famine Ireland, everything from butter churns to fishing lures, marriage customs to peat-cutting methods. Highly recommended not just for fans of Irish history but for writers interested in world-building--this is a great overview of a specific system, how it evolved, and how everything worked together. I guarantee it will make you question the mechanics of your created fantasy world and desire to improve it and make it feel more probable/functional.
