  1. It s quirky without a doubt, but all in all I enjoyed the strange bits of Irish history, the odd travelogue, and Roy s willingness to let himself look odd at times.


  2. This is the story of the author s leading a tour of Ireland purporting to get to the soul of the land and its history I genuinely want them to realize how the little things in Ireland are often what should command our greatest attention Not long before saying that this is what he wants to impart to the people on his tour, he said, Even though I dreamed up the itinerary, put all the pieces together, and wrote most of the brochure, I have to admit that I haven t seen many of the places on it in ye [...]


  3. Rounded up from 4.5 stars because this is a unique approach to the subject matter.The Back of Beyond is the story of author James Charles Roy s leadership of a small pilgrimage tour group in the rural parts of western Ireland An American, Roy has written extensively on Irish history his The Road Wet, the Wind Close is extremely well researched if a bit dry to read The story is part memoir, part history, and part travelogue It s a good tale of a tour guide trying to show his group a reality of Ir [...]

  5. Honestly, I skimmed most of it but it could be useful for research later James Charles Roy, author scholar, has bought a ruined wee castle in Ireland He guides a tour of Americans I think through the Galway area I wasn t totally impressed, there was a lot of navel gazing, but I think there s good info buried in there.


  6. Someone should option this for a film even with the ol Hollywood treatment it would be a charming film humor, pathos, character studies, tragedy, triumph.
