Ireland: A Photographic Tour
Random House Value Publishing, 1998 - Photography - 128 pages
"Ireland: A Photograph Tour" is a celebration in pictures and words of the land's remarkable people and attractions. One will encounter Ireland's natural wonders, from the baffling Giant's Causeway--a procession of basalt columns along the seashore, created by massive volcanic eruptions sixty-one million years ago-- to the dramatics Cliffs of Moher, a five-mile-long sheer rockface more than seven hundred feet out of the sea.
The collaboration of photographer Carol M. Highsmith and writer Ted Landphair has produced a wonderful book of vivid photos and insights that does justice to the land and its inhabitants. "Ireland: A Photographic Tour" makes a superb memento for anyone who has visited this fascinating land, and an enticing gift for anyone who longs to be touched by the warm and generous spirit that is the "Emerald Isle."
