Her comments sent me straight to Amazon to search for books on Irish American history. The Irish American Family Album provided a good introduction for my niece. The book is organized into brief selections highlighting people and events. It is a good introduction to the rich and often tragic history of a creative and determined people. Written in short chapters, with sidebars and first person accounts, the book provides interesting topics for additional exploration. Like all good family albums, this book can bring the generations together, spark informative discussion and provide insight into the family dynamics.
Overall, I found this to be a very interesting book. Indeed, being something of an oral history of such a vast and varied experience, it is bound to only hit the highlights. But, that said, what this book sets out to do it does admirably. I really enjoyed reading the many reminisces of what happened, showing the life of the Irish-American from all of its many sides.
This is a great book, one that I am glad that I read, and one that I do not hesitate to recommend. Buy it!
