The Story We Carry in Our Bones: Irish History for Americans by Juliene Osborne-McKnight

From 3800 B.C. to the twentieth century, this comprehensive history examines the course of Irish-Americans. Celtic legends, the evolution of Christianity, the coming of the Vikings, and the time of the Tudors are just some of the topics covered in these pages. Juilene Osborne-McKnight addresses the events leading up the An Gorta Mor, or the Great Hunger, which initiated the Irish immigration to America. She then follows the Irish as they travel to the new country and establish themselves as Irish-Americans. Whimsical yet complex Celtic drawings and an annotated bibliography of recommended books and movies accent each part. The four sections are entitled “Knock Wood and Light the Pumpkin,” “Keeping Faith at the Cross Road,” “No One Leaves Your Table Hungry,” and “Irish Roots and Rising Irish.”
