Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book describes Ireland's history and the large Irish emigrations to America. Readers are introduced to the history of the Irish in America, the arrival of the Scotch-Irish in Colonial America, and the discrimination and other hardships faced by those escaping the potato famine in the mid-nineteenth century. There is a discussion of Irish culture that includes St. Patrick's Day celebrations, the importance of family, music, dance and the Catholic faith, as well as the interest in the Irish language. Nellie Bly, John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, and Rosie O'Donnell are the famous Irish Americans who are presented. Glossary, web sites, and an index are included. There is quite a bit of information here, neatly laid out with photographs and maps. 2004, ABDO, Ages 6 to 9.
