Ireland is a place of mystical, enduring appeal, especially for the many millions of Americans who claim its special heritage, more than one in six according to the last U.S. Census. But Ireland has also become an international place of pilgrimage and of discovery for all who venture there.This unique collaboration between Elizabeth Billups, a Santa-Fe-based photographer and activist, and Gerry Adams, the renowned leader of Sinn Fein, reveals a side of Ireland--and of Gerry Adams--not often portrayed in the guidebooks or magazines or news media. In this special book, the two kindred spirits wander the country together and share a deep love of the land and its people, with Ms. Billups taking gorgeous photographs and Mr. Adams writing unforgettable words.While Mr. Adams has written many acclaimed books concerning his political vision for Ireland, until now he has refrained from sharing his affection for his native land. And so, with Ms. Billups, we are able travel to his and her favorite places, the places that, to them, bespeak of Ireland as one island without borders. Looking at Ms. Billups's beautiful photographs and reading Mr. Adams's family stories and personal anecdotes along with relevant historical details, legends, and myths, we come to understand why Ireland is such a special place and why he fought so long and hard to achieve peace for the many generations to come.

About the Author

Elizabeth Billups is a photographer, philanthropist, and activist from Santa Fe who's photographs have been exhibited in both Ireland and the United States. Heralded as "a gifted writer" by The New York Times, Gerry Adams is the author of several works of nonfiction, including the noteworthy A Farther Shore: Ireland's Long Road to Peace (Random House, 2003).


The Irish peace process had to overcome decades if not centuries of hate, mistrust, and oppression. Its success was a true triumph of the human spirit. No one did more to make it happen than Gerry Adams. " "For more than a quarter of a century, Gerry Adams has been a powerful source of inspiration for justice and peace in Northern Ireland. I am proud of our friendship and compelled to support him in his efforts." Breathtakingly beautiful photography throughout truly enhances an deftly written, informed and informative text. The result is an armchair traveler's delight -- and one that will make an enduringly popular and highly recommended addition to personal and community library collections.
