Mystical Moods of Ireland, Vol. IV: In the Footsteps of W. B. Yeats at Coole Park and Ballylee
This book is so beautifully done that I hope to collect all of his works. Imagine yourself walking through a peaceful, lovely countryside where once a wonderful writer found inspiration from the simple, refreshing and soulful surroundings of this land he loved. Take a long, deep breath of cool country air and quietly lose yourself in these pages. You're sure to come back again and again.
This book is beautiful both in photographic content and inscriptions. This book goes a step beyond in capturing the natural beauty of Ireland. Coole Park and Balleylee are brought to life. As I am no longer able to hike long distances, this book enables me to be present "In the Seven Woods"...A treasure I can experience again and again. I look forward to owning the four other volumes of "Mystical Moods of Ireland"! Susan Soderstrom
Thumbing through a book of James Truett's photographs is like a walk through a perfect dream. His settings, his sense of balance of subject and color are exemplary. I have visited Ireland four times and James' photographs bring me back there immediately and create a sense of peace and serenity that is Ireland. I highly recommend all of his books as well as his daily Facebook page.

I found this purchase to be a very good one. The book is truly lovely. I have all 4 volumes of James A. Truett's work and feel this is the best one yet - beautiful pictures and a wonderful visit to Coole Park and Ballylee, Ireland without having to make the flight across the Atlantic.
If you feel a deep spiritual connection with the mystical lands of Ireland, or you simply sense the enchantment of the words of Ireland's famed Nobel Prize-winning Poet, William Butler Yeats, you'll enjoy this fourth volume in the Mystical Moods of Ireland series: In the Footsteps of W. B. Yeats at Coole Park and Ballylee, capturing the moods of two of the literary icon's favorite places -- and sources of inspiration -- in County Galway, Ireland.
For more than 30 summers, Yeats sought refuge at Coole Park and in his 15th Century Norman castle, Thoor Ballylee, from the social, cultural and political upheaval of late 19th and early 20th Century Ireland.
The perfect accompaniment to any collection of Yeats' works, these stunning images will take you along on your own visual journey "In the Seven Woods," immortalized in his 1903 collection of the same name, and to his iconic Tower with its Winding Stair, both featured in his later writings.
You'll certainly see why he once described the area around Coole Park and Ballylee to a friend with these words:
"Everything is so beautiful that to go elsewhere is to leave beauty behind."
Let this book and these images be your refuge as well, as you experience and feel the natural and other-worldly beauty that inspired one of the greatest literary minds of our time.
