Gerard Doyle narrates the astonishing life story of Thomas Meagher with the lilting enthusiasm of an Irishman who has a fine yarn to tell. And how fine it is. Meagher went from Irish mayor's son to leader of a failed nationalist revolt to Australian convict to hunted escapee to leader of the Union Army's Irish Brigade in the American Civil War and then to governor of the Montana Territory. In this true tale, award-winning author Timothy Egan has discovered an Irish-American story as archetypal as it is unique. He tells it with heartwarming relish amply supported by Doyle's rendition. Infinitely listenable, Doyle delivers this remarkable biography with a clarity, pleasure, and ease that will entice even those who've never heard of Meagher.
