The book features 49 spectacular color photographs capturing the drama and moods of the legendary Irish weather, as it paints brilliant displays in the skies over County Clare, County Kerry, County Cork and other scenic locations in Ireland.

This updated version has been redesigned for print publication as a glossy softcover "coffee-table" book, and includes a special new chapter -- "Blue Skies - Backdrop to Nature's Landscape" -- showcasing the Emerald Isle landscape under brilliant blue skies.
Author/Photographer James Truett is a resident of County Clare, who returned to his ancestral roots from his birthplace of Alaska more than 100 years after his Irish grandmother and great grandfather separately set out for the distant shores of the U.S. in the 1800s.
