Description: NOTE: COVER HAS SOME WATER DAMAGE. INSIDE IS IN GOOD CONDITION. An acclaimed science writer celebrates an enduring symbol of Ireland's Celtic past, Christian tradition and love of nature.

He takes us to a time when Mediterranean Christianity ran up against Celtic nature worship and the Irish forged a fusion of knowledge and faith that sustains us today.
