In the winter of 1951, a storyteller, the last practitioner of an honored, centuries-old tradition, arrives at the home of nine-year-old Ronan O'Mara in the Irish countryside. For three wonderful evenings, the old gentleman enthralls his assembled local audience with narratives of foolish kings, fabled saints, and Ireland's enduring accomplishments before moving on. But these nights change young Ronan forever, setting him on a years-long pursuit of the elusive, itinerant storyteller and the glorious tales that are no less than the saga of his tenacious and extraordinary isle.

If you love stories...
This book has a very compelling story with many more stories within. The storyteller's tales take you through the history of Ireland, and Ronan's quest takes him, and you, to many of Ireland's locales. I only wish I had read this before I went there instead of after. I would have had a richer appreciation for everything I saw.
Just wonderful !!!
Wonderful, captivating reading
A book that is hard to put down. It provides an entertaining and captivating view of Irish history that would take the reading of several books to garner. A must read!!!
