Publisher's Summary

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.

I love Rebecca Solnit's writing

What did you love best about A Book of Migrations?

The narrator was ill chosen. She mispronounced words, which is such a shame when
one is reading such great, intelligent writer's words. Rebecca Solnit is an exceptional
writer, and this narrator simply was not up to the task of bringing her words to audio.
Such a shame, because it is an excellent book. I bought a copy and read it.
