From a writer and photographer team who lovingly share their responses to the region they are lucky enough to call home: Jo Kerrigan, historian and journalist with national and international publications, and Richard Mills, multiple award-winning press and wildlife photographer.
Jo Kerrigan grew up amid the wild beauties of West Cork; after working in the UK as writer, academic and journalist, she returned home to the place she loved best.
She now writes regularly for a range of publications, including The Irish Examiner and the Evening Echo as well as international magazines, and operates a very popular online weblog. They know and savor every nook and cranny of this part of the world, the flora and the fauna and the fables. It's not just a picture book, it's a book with pictures, and what photos they are.
Jo Kerrigan is a born storyteller and Richard Mills has a wonderful eye for the landscapes and inhabitants of this little corner of the Emerald Isle, where life seems to proceed at a slower pace and the old spirits still abide.
