Northern Ireland has become synonymous with conflict, terrorism and tortuous efforts to forge peace. But what is life there really like? Martin Fletcher presents a portrait of a Northern Ireland of lakes, rivers and mountains, where customs, traditions and old-world charm survive. He reveals an incredibly resourceful province which has given the world not just bombs and bullets, but the "Titanic", the tyre and the tractor, a dozen American presidents, two Prime Ministers of New Zealand and a Hindu god. He describes a God-fearing people, a land of terrible beauty, a battleground of good and evil, a province populated by saints and sinners that has yet to be rendered bland by the forces of modernity.

Reviews

'Charming' summer round up, DAILY TELEGRAPH 'If you read his previous book, ALMOST HEAVEN, you will know Fletcher's qualities include insight and eloquence...his compassionate, witty book is rich with insight into a place of cockfights, witchcraft, eccentricity and magic' SUNDAY TIMES 'When it comes to Northern Ireland, we have not so much switched off as forgotten to change channels. Fletcher hands us the remote' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
