Description

This beautifully crafted picture story book describes the life of Ireland's patron saint, Patrick. The book draws on both legend and his own writings to tell the thrilling story of how the boy-slave returned to the land of his captivity to preach the Christian message of faith. The luminous illustrations evoke the Celtic land of St. Patrick and the light he shone into a dark world of cruelty and superstition.show more
