In the best tradition of storytelling, these timeless and universal vignettes kick off a conversation, draw you in, and inspire follow-through on the important stories of today and tomorrow.

Come travel through our natural world with a pilgrim from childhood, parenthood, and mellowing years, through landscapes of the mind as familiar to the author as the early city suburbs, mountains, and sea, where he was rooted and grew, to centre in on our place in today's world.

As you read these reflections on Dublin and Ireland of the old century, you will also recognise your own place and time and wish to tell your story. Let your nature lead you in the telling, and your listeners carry forward ever more tales.

A native of Dublin, Ireland, Brendan Price is the founder of the Irish Seal Sanctuary. A marine biologist and wildlife advocate, the author was educated in the Newman tradition at Catholic University School and University College Dublin. He received a distinguished recommendation in the 2014 Hemingway Short Story Competition. He now lives in a quiet country village outside Dublin called Garristown, a town steeped in folklore and history.
