This book won the Pullitzer prize and is excellent. It is hard to understand the kind of poverty that drove so many immigrants to this country. This book recalls the Northern Ireland childhood of the author and is the story of his family and their survival. An amazing story that is, in a way, the story of many of our grandparents who came here to find a better life not only for themselves but their decendants- us. If you are not grateful, you will be after reading this book.
