Irish American Chronicleby Terry Golway (Essay By), Thomas Fleming (Consultant), Peter Quinn (Preface by), Maureen O'Hara (Foreword by)
With only hope and faith to sustain them, the Irish came to America en masse during the Great Famine of the 1840s. They banded together, overcame poverty and prejudice, and became one of America's greatest success stories. The Irish constructed roads, railways, churches, and schools. Their children became teachers and firefighters, artists and politicians. Some, such as John F. Kennedy, rose to the highest office in the land.
In words and pictures, this book chronicles the complete Irish American experience—from the "Rebel Girl" to Ronald Reagan, from Tammany Hall to Notre Dame football, from the Fenian invasion of Canada to "Riverdance" and Angela's Ashes. Experience all the drama of this epic story in this unique and extraordinary volume, Irish American Chronicle.
