Synopsis: A remarkable eyewitness account of the Famine by an American woman. Mrs. Nicholson, a native of Vermont, spent nearly three years in Ireland, from the winter of 1847 (the worst of the Famine) to 1849, trying to do what she could to help the poor, from running her own soup kitchen in Dublin, to visiting the sick and dying in the huts and fields all around the island. Besides providing a powerful and vivid picture of life during the Famine, it is an acute examination of the circumstances that led to and sustained the catastrophe, condemning those in power who mismanaged, miscarried, and misjudged. This is one of the most valuable records we have of Ireland in the throes of the Great Famine .""Mrs. Nicholson is so unique and original that she seems to have stepped out of a novel. Yet hers is a true witness and real voice that penetrates the bloodless, statistical versions of Ireland's Famine agony and renders the immense human tragedy at its heart""-Peter Quinn.

Book Description The Lilliput Press Ltd, Ireland, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. In January 1847, in the worst winter of the Irish famine, Asenath Hatch Nicholson began her one-woman relief operation in Dublin: a soup-kitchen, visits to the homes of the poor and distributing bread in the streets. These efforts marked the start of a campaign, as she travelled the country, aiming to alleviate the starving conditions in Dublin and the West of Ireland and simultaneously bring the Bible to the Irish poor . This book is the narrative of an eye-witness who became a part of the lives of those she helped; feeding, clothing and cooking for the most needy. It has observations of individuals and events, but it also examines the circumstances that led to and sustained the famine, condeming those in power who mismanaged resources.
