The tragedy of the famine, seen through one girl's eyes

During the terrible years of the "great hunger," thousands of Irishpeople faced death from starvation and disease. The faminebegan in 1845, and by 1850, a million people had died and afurther one and a half million had fled the country, manyjourneying across the Atlantic in leaky, overcrowded sailing shipsto make new lives in America.

Told in the voice of twelve-year-old Mary O'Flynn, this is the storyof the courage and determination with which one family survivedthis appalling ordeal. Uniquely illustrated with authenticphotographs of landscapes, interiors, and genuine period artifacts,Mary's quiet, brave voice tells us what it was like to livethrough the greatest tragedy in Ireland's history.
