Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Ireland is a place of mystical, enduring appeal for many, including the millions of Americans who claim its heritage―over one-sixth the current US population, according to the last census. This unique collaboration between Gerry Adams, the renowned leader of Sinn Fein, and Elizabeth Billups, a Santa Fe-based photographer and activist, reveals the Ireland not always seen in guidebooks, as well as a side of Adams not usually captured in the news. Ireland: One Island, No Borders presents the country as seen through the eyes of one of its most famous and passionate sons, and an equally passionate American of Irish ancestry. Adams shares personal anecdotes and family stories along with relevant historical details, legends, and myths, complemented by Billups’ photographs of their favorite places throughout the country, and her impressions culled from many visits. Although he does not focus on politics, Adams’s discussion of his participation in the historic Good Friday Peace Agreement adds an important dimension to the text. While there have been a number of illustrated books on Ireland, what makes this book unique is the fact that Gerry Adams has written over a dozen titles, but never one on Ireland itself and his deep love for his country, as opposed to his political vision for its future. Looking at this gorgeously produced volume and reading his text will make any reader understand why he fought so long and so hard for peace - and why so many people the world over share his great love of Ireland. ** Nominated for a 2015 IPPY Award" from the Independent Publishers Association **

The book is divided into chapters guiding us through each city and section with lovely photos and descriptive and insightful text. If you have ever been to Ireland you will want this for your coffee table to show friends. If you live in Ireland you will learn all about the land you love. No one visits Ireland without being infected by its mystery and magic, and this book tells you why."- Bonnie Neely of Real Travel Adventures, 11/11/2014.
