    DescriptionIn this acclaimed exploration of the culture of others, Rebecca Solnit travels through Ireland, the land of her long-forgotten maternal ancestors. "A Book of Migrations" portrays in microcosm a history made of great human tides of invasion, colonization, emigration, nomadism and tourism. Enriched by cross-cultural comparisons with the history of the American West, "A Book of Migrations" carves a new route through Ireland's history, literature and landscape.
