This book, a companion to Connemara: Listening to the Wind, is a magnificent celebration of one of Europe's most remote and significant landscapes. The book encompasses detailed notes on the history and natural topography of the region as well as an exploration of the lives of many of the people who have inhabited this landscape over the centuries. Robinson's sometimes bleak but always affirming vision is characterised by his meticulous understanding of the mid-west of Ireland, the result of over 35 years of engagement with every aspect of Connemara's past and present. This trilogy, when completed, will undoubtedly achieve classic status.
