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.
