Nature’s Silent Music : A Rucksack Naturalist’s Ireland by Philip S. Callahan 1992, Trade Paperback
In this book, Callahan shows how ”civilized” insanity is turning Ireland away from her naturally harmonious, aesthetically pleasing, sound practices. Why remove a thatched roof to replace it with galvanized tin, only to increase the heating bill? With insightful wisdom, Callahan also ex¬amines the mysterious power of round towers, ”magic spots” and healers such as Biddy Early. Callahan’s study of hedgerows, booley people and Ireland’s traditional form of agriculture can teach everyone the value of the land and why not to carelessly destroy it with toxic chemicals.
