    Listen to the Land Speak (eBook) von Magan, Manchán

    A Journey into the Wisdom of What Lies Beneath Us

    Our ancestors lived in a unique and complex society that was inspired by nature and centred upon esteemed poets, seers, monks, healers and wise women, all of whom were deeply connected to the land around them. This relationship to the cycles of the natural world - from which we are increasingly dissociated - was the animating force in their lives.

    With infectious joy and wonder, Manchán Magan roams through Ireland's ancient bogs, rivers, mountains and shorelines, tracing our ancestors' footsteps. He uncovers the myths and lore that have shaped a national identity that is quietly embedded in the land, which has endured ice ages, famine and floods.

    A magical and reinvigorating exploration into the wisdom that lies beneath us, Listen to the Land Speak casts the world in a new light.

    Über den Autor Magan, Manchán

    Manchán Magan is a writer and documentary-maker. He has written books in Irish and English on his travels in Africa, India and South America, and on the Irish language. Most recently, the bestselling Thirty-Two Words for Field and Tree Dogs, Banshee Fingers and Other Irish Words for Nature were nominated for Irish Book Awards. He writes occasionally for the Irish Times and presents The Almanac of Ireland podcast for RTÉ Radio 1, as well as scores of television documentaries on history and culture. Brought up in Dublin, with long periods spent in the west Kerry Gaeltacht, Manchán now lives near Lough Lene, County Westmeath, surrounded by oak trees.

    Manchán is named after a seventh century saint whose monastery and meditation path still survive in Lemanaghan, County Offaly. The name is thought to derive from manach-án ('little monk') or to be a Christianisation of the pagan deity Mongán, son of the sea god Manannán. Mongán, who could manifest as a seal, salmon, deer, wolf or man, was the father of Sinand, the goddess known as the physical form of the River Shannon.
