Stock Code:


A Ghost Upon Your Path: An Irish Journey by John McCarthy. Every since he first visited Ireland with his family twenty years ago, John McCarthy has felt a strong affinity with its people and landscape. Yet in spite of his Irish name, he has never thought of himself as remotely Irish. Two decades later much about that country has changed. Aware that the Ireland that first attracted him - a place of breathtaking beauty and a culture steeped in its love of language, music and humour - is only a part of the picture, McCarthy sets up home in a wild and isolated corner of County Kerry, where his ancestors lived a thousand years before. From here he examines what it means to be Irish from the viewpoint of a small rural community, and unravels his own curious sense of belonging to a place he has never before lived in. The dust jacket has light general wear with some small creases. The book remains tight and bright. A LARGE BOOK THAT MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT.
