Price: $8.00

Publisher: Great Britain, Cicerone: 2005

Seller ID: 246091

ISBN: 1852844566

Condition: Good Condition


The River Ribble springs from the limestone of the Yorkshire Dales, high on Cam Fell in the heart of Three Peak country. The 70 1/2-mile (113km) Ribble Way is described in seven stages, the route alternating from one side of the valley to the other, generally making use of road bridges to cross the river. Initially forcing a passage between high, rugged moorland hills, it then breaks free to wind through gentler countryside south of Settle, meandering lazily through alternating pasture and ancient woodland, where old manor houses and early 18th-century village cottages still hold sway against ...

The Transformation of Ireland 1900-2000

By: Diarmaid Ferriter

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Great Britain, Profile Books: 2005

Seller ID: 241143

ISBN: 1861974434

Condition: Good Condition


A ground-breaking history of the twentieth century in Ireland, written on the most ambitious scale by a brilliant young historian. It is significant that it begins in 1900 and ends in 2000 - most accounts have begun in 1912 or 1922 and largely ignored the end of the century. Politics and political parties are examined in detail but high politics does not dominate the book, which rather sets out to answer the question: 'What was it like to grow up and live in 20th-century Ireland'? It deals with the North in a comprehensive way, focusing on the social and cultural aspects, not just the obvious ... View more info
