The people who talk about their lives in this book represent a creative, dissident Ireland. They are water-diviners, weavers, artists, writers, teachers, farmers, wood-cutters, gardeners, travellers and monks. Some continue ways of life that have existed for generations; others have chosen to live and work in ways that are experimental,exploratory and have made prompt us to reflect on our own choices. These thirty-two portraits in word and image provide an alternative view of the possibilies of life in Ireland, and a bracing antidote to the banalities of the consumer society.
