Rescued from memory by Ireland's leading short-story writer and raconteur, this anthology weaves a rich tapestry of songs, ballads and poetry reaching across three centuries and drawn from the lanes and highways of thirty-two counties. Contents include poetry by W.B.Yeats, A.E., F.R.Higgins, Louis MacNeice, Patrick Kavanagh, Francis Ledwidge and Oliver St John Gogarty; and songs of love, rebellion and in praise of nature including 'The Yellow Bittern', 'The Bold Fenian Men', 'Ringletted Youth of my Love', 'Galway Races' and 'My Love is Like the Sun'. 'Kiely is a great storyteller, a very gifted novelist, an extraordinary writer of short stories, and a very good broadcaster. He is a writer whose work has been consistent and abundant; ... the best writer about places around Ireland that I have read' - Brendan Kennelly 'There could not possibly be a better companion on a walk around Ireland than Ben Kiely.' - In Time's Eye, The Irish Times
