4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for anyone, especially those researching their Irish roots.
By Alice Wakefield on May 12, 2018
This remarkable widow from New York City left a priceless journal of her travels through Ireland on the eve of the great Famine. She traveled alone, walking much of the way and staying among the friendly tenant farmers who unfailingly shared what they had, be it a meal of potatoes or a special off-the-floor bed away from the livestock.

This is the stuff I wanted to know. The author writes:

"The habits of cooking and eating have scarcely varied for two centuries; their cabins, their furniture, have undergone little or no change; the thatched roofs, the ground floor, the little window, the stone or mud walls, the peat fire, the clay chimney, the wooden stool, the pot, and the griddle, have probably been the inheritance of many generations."

They still had some potatoes, but the animals were raised for the English markets. She describes a typical meal in vivid detail, and said it never varied. After boiling a pot of potatoes over the fire, they're drained into a basket. The cooking pot is then put under a board which serves as a table, and the potatoes are "poured" on top. No dishes or utensils were used - everyone eats with their hands. They didn't even have salt.

The photos I posted are not from the book. Researching my ancestry I've found many of their cabins still dot the Irish landscape and wondered how so many people fit into them, never mind the pigs. Yet, where ever she traveled she was impressed with the manners, warmth, and generosity extended to her from these remarkable people on the brink of starvation.

I would have given it 5 stars if only it were digitalized.
