Hitching for Hope: A Journey Into the Heart and Soul of Ireland - Ruair� Mckiernan

Hitching for Hope: A Journey Into the Heart and Soul of Ireland


#1 Irish Times Bestseller

A modern travel tale--part personal pilgrimage, part political quest--that captures the power of human resilience

"McKiernan sticks his thumb out, and somehow a healthy dose of humanity manages to roll up alongside him. . . . This book is a paean to nuance, decency and possibility."--Colum McCann, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author of Let the Great World Spin and Apeirogon.

Following the collapse of Ireland's Celtic Tiger economy, social activist Ruair McKiernan questions whether he should join the mounting number of emigrants searching for greater opportunity elsewhere. McKiernan embarks on a hitchhiking odyssey with no money, no itinerary and no idea where he might end up each night. His mission: to give voice to those emerging from one of the most painful periods of economic and social turmoil in Ireland's history. Engaging, provocative and sincere, Hitching for Hope is a testimony to the spirit of Ireland. It is an inspirational manifesto for hope and healing in troubled times.
