Notable for their history,... More > which stretches back thousands of years, it was with this in mind that Synge conducted his travels of the islands. He attempts to catalog the unique culture of the isolated islands, noting how the peoples adapted to the rugged and adverse climate.

We are so accustomed to living in fluids, that it is easy to forget or underestimate their importance.< Less
