Granuaile: The Life and Times of Grace O'Malley, C. 1530-1603
This is a revised edition of the author's portrait of Grace O'Malley. The text combines further revelations about O'Malley with a re-examination and analysis of her life, especially in the context of women's role in history, both political and social. It also examines the relationship between women and the sea, so much part of both the fact and the legend of Granuaile.
