"Kirby revels, like few authors do today, in the sheer wonder of Creation. Poet, painter, storyteller, folklorist and fisherman emerge and merge in this glowing book, speaking of his awe as he turns a trained eye to an environment he has lived in and loved for almost a century." - Gabriel Rosenstock "What a pleasure to read this wonderful collection of memories and reflections, fact, folklore and natural history... Michael Kirby, Irish speaker and prodigious reader, is a man who understands the true value of life. He shows us in this marvellous book that everything that lives is connected... his is the view of the wise man... we have much to learn from him." - from the Foreword by Jane Urquhart, prizewinning author of Awake and The Underpainter
