    DescriptionVisiting the entire length of Ireland's wild Atlantic coast, from the sublime scale of seascape and mountain-scape in Donegal through the barren limestone of West Clare to the lush, quasitropical mountains of the south-west, The Atlantic Coast of Ireland records the landscape in beautiful detail and recounts the stories that echo through it. The beauty of the Atlantic coast is anything but timeless. These environments embody geology, deep history, ecology, politics, climate, agriculture, religion and much more. The diversity of Ireland's culture and geography combines to produce an acute blend of place and history, found nowhere so intensely as here. Years in the making, Jonathan Hession's marvellous photographs are complemented by John Grenham's wise and witty text, introducing each region and examining the themes that arise from their landscape and history. A perfect companion for travellers on the newly inaugurated Wild Atlantic Way, this is a definitive account, and a book to treasure.
