Publisher Comments:

Sara Walsh was born in 1919 in the west of Ireland, in a land of storytellers. In prose that is neither history nor memoir but something larger and brighter than both, ."Remembering Ahanagran captures her memories of her early years in Ireland, her migration to the United States, and her marriage to Harry White, the Harvard-educated son of Russian Jewish emigrants. Her son, eminent historian Richard White, in collaboration with Sara, forces history as it is traditionally written into conversation with personal recollections.

Book News Annotation:

In 1936, a young woman named Sara Walsh left her native Ireland for the United States, where she began a new life with relatives on the South Side of Chicago and eventually married the son of Russian Jewish emigrants. This volume recounts her life story, as told to her son, historian Richard White (Stanford U.). Her narratives are augmented by White's own recollections as well as those of other family members.
