The Graves are Walking: The Great Famine and the Saga of the Irish People
by John Kelly
This publication brings the Irish Potato Famine to life. The potato blight began in 1845, and continued into 1851. More than one million Irish peasants starved to death or died of disease. Another million fled to Canada, America or English cities like Liverpool. The author gives a clear picture of the inadequate British poor law polices that reshaped the Irish landscape.
