Content descriptions

Summary: In 1951, nine-year-old Ronan O'Mara's life changes forever when an itinerant shanachie (traditional Irish storyteller) shows up on his family's doorstep, offering a tale in exchange for food--and what a tale it is! For the next three nights, the Storyteller spins a sprawling epic of Ireland and its colorful past, weaving together strands of myth and history. By the time the Storyteller departs, Ronan's own interest in Irish folklore has been awakened, and from that day forward, he dedicates his life to gathering and retelling the old legends. Fans of the historical sagas of James Michener and Edward Rutherfurd will devour this "vivid rendering of Irish history" (Kirkus Reviews).
