Travelling throughout the remote Celtic world, award-winning author Marcus Tanner describes the relentless pressure on Celtic communities to assimilate and warns that a distinct Celtic identity may not survive for another generation-a sobering loss that would impoverish us all. "Tanner has concluded we must resign ourselves to the fact that Celticism is done, over, finis.
He proves it in a very good and special book that every prodigal and true Celt should read and try to prove wrong."-Malachy McCourt, Washington Post Book World"Lively. . . . [A] thoughtful book."-Publishers Weekly"An exceptional journey into the remarkable cultural history of the Celtic people. . . . [Tanner's] experience reads like a travelogue and an insightful history with an emphasis on cultural heritage."-Raymond L.
Flynn, Boston Sunday Herald"[An] angry, elegiac and meticulously researched book."-Christian Century
