In this acclaimed exploration of the culture of others, Rebecca Solnit travels through Ireland, the land of her long-forgotten maternal ancestors. A Book of Migrations portrays in microcosm a history made of great human tides of invasion, colonization, emigration, nomadism and tourism. Enriched by cross-cultural comparisons with the history of the American West, A Book of Migrations carves a new route through Ireland’s history, literature and landscape.

About the Author:

Rebecca Solnit is author of, among other books, Wanderlust, A Book of Migrations, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, the NBCC award-winning River of Shadows and A Paradise Built In Hell. A contributing editor to Harper’s, she writes regularly for the London Review of Books and the Los Angeles Times. She lives in San Francisco.

From Library Journal:

Though the scenario is familiar?an American with Irish ancestry travels to Ireland to explore her roots and her identity?this book is not typical. The essays here have a more intellectual bent; the descriptions of the people and the landscape are interspersed with philosophical musings on things such as the use of animal metaphors in our language, the life of Irish patriot Roger Casement, the imagery of blood in discussions of ethnicity, and the reasons why the Travelers (the Irish version of gypsies) are so hated. Solnit (Savage Dreams, Sierra Club, 1994), who has written numerous essays in publications such as Sierra, writes in an accessible, readable style and displays a thorough knowledge of Irish history and literature. For academic libraries and public libraries with larger travel collections.?Kathleen A. Shanahan, American Univ., Silver Spring, Md.
