Alice Taylor’s classic account of growing up in the Irish countryside, the biggest selling book ever published in Ireland.
If ever a voice has captured the colors, the rhythms, the rich, bittersweet emotions of a time gone by, it is Alice Taylor's. Her tales of childhood in rural Ireland hark back to a timeless past, to a world now lost, but ever and fondly remembered. The colorful characters and joyous moments she offers have made To School Through the Fields an Irish phenomenon, and have made Alice herself the most beloved author in all of the Emerald Isle. A must-have for fans of Alice Taylor.
Illustrated throughout with evocative photographs, with a new introduction by the author, looking back at her breakthrough book twenty five years later.
