Burren Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Burren Country free pdf For 20 years Paul Clements has been tapping into the Burren's hidden crevices, drawn to its history, mystery and peculiarities. He writes absorbingly about the rocks, hills and walls, and the range of colours, the animals he rubs shoulders with, and about subjects which excite him, such as the exotic wild flowers, ancient ruins, early morning birdsong, and the smell of whiskey in historic pubs. A hunter and gatherer of information and lore on the Burren, the author ferrets out little-known facts and weaves them together to create these carefully distilled essays.
