Given the fact that there is little 'factual' writting concerning Patricks life and work in Ireland, Freeman does an incredible job of telling the story. This is a very factual account, but is also filled with thoughts/understanding fueled by Patricks Legacy. Totally worth reading.

Freeman's impeccable writing style and his adherence to historical accuracy make this ann all-time favorite book. It provides wonderful factual information as well as proposed information in between the missing areas. I learned so much from reading this book. I would not, however, recommend it for young teens as the historical setting covers very barbaric details, as it was in those days.
