John Boyle O'Reilly (1844-1890) is one of Ireland's most remarkable historical figures: a man who was, during his lifetime, an internationally renowned journalist, writer, and humanitarian. Born in Meath, it was in the US, during a time of intense economic and social turmoil, where O'Reilly's brilliance flourished. As editor of The Pilot, a Boston newspaper, he became a powerful advocate of the rights of workers and African Americans. A complex and charismatic personality, O'Reilly's popularity transcended race, religion, and nationality. Based on research in Ireland, Australia, and the United States, From The Earth, A Cry is a compelling account of an extraordinary life.
