"There is much said about "magical, mystical Ireland," but you don't feel it until you step out of a fog bank into a forest covered by moss-coated tree trunks and edge over to a stream white with foam and red with iron from the soil. I didn't see a banshee or leprechaun, but I felt I was standing on their home turf." -- from the Introduction by Jay Adlersberg
