For wild salmon conservationist, Aine O Connor, the journey of the wild salmon charts the route of her own journey back to the rivers of her birth on Celtic Dingle Peninsula to continue a thousand year family tradition of protecting the land and sea. When the economic tide suddenly turns in Ireland, Aine launches a Celtic Roots Campaign a traditional & local foods initiative through which she re-casts the Joycean nightmare of Irish history into a sustainable dream for the country s future. The preservationist passion that flows through Your Own Ones reminiscent of Barbara Kingsolver, with echoes of the warmth and humor of Maeve Binchy [Joyce Mandeville, Orange Prize nominee] will appeal to a wide range of readers, both caretakers of the land and of the heart. Come Away, (in the words of W.B. Yeats), to the waters & the wild of Your Own Ones an Irish State of Wonder.
