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<br/>one is reading such great, intelligent writer's words. Rebecca Solnit is an exceptional<br/>writer, and this narrator simply was not up to the task of bringing her words to audio.<br/>Such a shame, because it is an excellent book. I bought a copy and read it.

Narration

Narration was fine overall but the pronunciation of place names was poor. There was also really awful accents being attempted.
