Irish history during The Great Hunger, when English landlords employed factors to over see their lands in Ireland who could have all had Harvard MBAs. They evicted the land keepers for nonpayment of rents while allowing them only one crop for themselves, Potatoes, which died from wilt. The reason for the starvation was all other crops were confiscated and sold to maintain the estates. These practices are still resented by the Irish people with regard to the English!
Legacy of Hunger
A insightful historical novel about Irish lore and the potato famine. The characters were very life like and made the story that much more real and horrible. The depth of famine and pain brought on by the British and Irish nobility made this story one to remember.
