Linked to a five-part BBC2 television series on the Irish diaspora, this illustrated account makes use of letters and other writings by ordinary emigrants and families who fled poverty, hunger, and political and religious oppression to start a new life in distant parts. Their descendants are now estimated to number some 70 million around the world, and those descendants' devotion to their "homeland" has maintained a strong and enduring sense of Irish identity.
