Dorothea Lange's Ireland portrays a way of life that still permeates the spirit of Ireland and its people. It explores the world of the rural Irish family at midcentury, rooted to the land and to each other by bonds of love and friendship that lent them strength despite their many hardships.

Essays by Irish writer Gerry Mullins detail Lange's life and revisit some of the places and people she encountered in Ireland nearly 50 years ago. Rounding out the text is an eloquent reminiscence by Daniel Dixon, Lange's son, who accompanied her to Ireland and helped her to edit her work. "Throughout our assignment", writes Dixon, "we were chilled by the Irish temperatures but warmed by the Irish temperament".

The Irish temperament warms the pages of Dorothea Lange's Ireland as well; anyone who loves Ireland and the Irish will treasure this book.
