To understand modern Ireland one must understand the history of Ireland. Its legends, religious and political life, culture, and wider contributions to the world remain linked to its rich past. In The Story of the Irish Race, popular writer and storyteller Seumas MacManus provides a wide-ranging look at the development of Ireland and its people. Beginning with the early colonization by the Milesius of Spain, MacManus explores ancient stories about the Tuatha De Danann, Cuchullain, Fionn and the Fian, Irish invasions of Britain, St. Bridget and St. Patrick, Irish missionaries and scholars abroad, and life and culture in ancient and medieval Ireland. He also investigates more recent events and names in Irish history, such as Oliver Cromwell, "The Wild Geese," Wolfe Tone, Daniel O'Connell, the Fenians, the Famine, Charles Stewart Parnell, and the Land League. From its earliest days to the Easter Rising, MacManus provides an entertaining and enlightening look at one of the most fascinating cultures we know. SEUMAS MacMANUS was a prolific Donegal-based author who published a number of books in the U.S., including Donegal Fairy Stories, In Chimney-Corners, The Donegal Wonder-Book, The Well o' the World's End, and A Lad of the O'Friels. He contributed stories to some of the leading magazines of his day, including Harper's and The Century. He was married to Anna Johnson, who, under the pen name Ethna Carbery, published two volumes of verse, The Passionate Heart and The Four Winds of Erin.
