a must for your bookshelf - if you're irish that is!
enjoyable look at the history of the irish people in america. easy reading that makes you grateful of the sacrifices made by parents, grandparents, great-garndparents etc.. though woven around the successes and failures of the famous clans of john f kennedy and eugene o'neill; the book never loses touch with reality and the millions of not so famous irish who helped build america.. the author coffey's chapters are further complimented by articles & short stories written by prominent irish-americans of today such as frank mccourt, denis leary and maeve binchy. wonderful photographs make this a book a prize and well worth the price!Was this review helpful?
