THE RED-HAIRED GIRL FROM THE BOG

The Landscape of Celtic Myth and Spirit

When Patricia Monaghan traveled to Ireland seeking her roots, what she found was much more than her physical ancestors. This is the story of her journey and the legends, landmarks, and mystical lore she encountered. Her poetic stories elucidate the ways that myth reveals the truth of human experience as well as the contradictions that are embodied in women's lives.

  • From the author of The Book of Goddesses and Heroines.
  • An extensive exploration of goddess mythology in Ireland, from Brigit, the Celtic goddess of water, fire, and transformation, to the historical figure of Granueille, a pirate queen.

Endorsements

"The next time I'm in Ireland, I hope Patricia Monaghan is there. Her keen spiritual perceptions — both serious and playful — wake up the land, the ancient myths, and the secret places in our hearts."
— Tom Cowan, author of Fire in the Head: Shamanism and the Celtic Spirit
