Was assigned this for an Anthropology of Global Catholicism class - absolutely loved it! I'll be keeping & rereading this one! The writing style was much more reader-friendly than the average book in this field. At the same time, the content is not wanting in order to appeal to its A.D.D. readers. As an orthodox/orthoprax Roman Catholic, I might not agree with everything he says but gosh-darn-it I love this book nonetheless. It was pleasant to read & as I might have already said - I plan on keeping & rereading this one in the near future.

I love this book. It's a great view into SW Donegal before it was all modernized. It describes the deep faith and Catholic customs ingrained in the culture. Some of the rituals are still practiced; however, not as much as when he wrote the book. Many of the people he interviewed have passed on and he was able to extract valuable historical information from them. This area is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world and I highly recommend this book.
