The O'Brien Press, publishers, Dublin - ISBN:090514063X, 1980. hardcover, 7" x 10", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent covering, with usual library stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Binding sound. GOOD book in GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Over 60 b&w illustrations (mostly photographs), 10 maps, notes, and index. Thirty miles west of Killarney, off Ireland's western-most point, lies the Blasket Group of Islands - 'floating in the Atlantic like a school of hump-backed whales'. Their population, at its peak during World War One, numbered no more than 160 souls, yet Blasket has produced a literary flowering rooted in its indigenous peasant culture. The authors trace the growth of the island community from its earliest recorded presence (the Great Famine) to its final evacuation in 1953.
