IN SEARCH OF THE ANCIENT

DESCRIPTION:
In Search of the Ancient is a Pilgrim's Journal of true experiences in poems and short stories about a six month backpacking journey to explore and discover the mysteries of Ancient Ireland found in the many megalithic stone circles, cairns, and dolmens across the country. As in all journeys what we expect and what we find are often times not exactly what we had intended and this journey had a mind of its own. It lead me for the next ten years into the most difficult and exciting years a person searching for Ireland's ancient past could hope for.
The book contains colour illustrations of original oil paintings from West Cork Artist Eleanor Murray of Firebird Arts and are used with much appreciation for the artist and her vision concerning the ancient stones of Ireland.
