Sinopse

This book is written as a novel. It is based on the life of John Boyle O'Reilly, not perhaps as well known as it deserves to be, in Ireland at any rate. He was born in 1844 in Drogheda, and died in Hull, Massachusetts USA in 1890, of an accidental overdose of his wife's sleeping pills. He was a writer, poet, journalist, and above all an Irish Nationalist, like so many other young men of his times who were born Catholics in Ireland. I have stuck to his real life story as closely as I could, but have diverted from it in detail where I felt it was appropriate for dramatic impact, committing sins of omission and commission along the way!. The title is based on history - the Irish have been leaving Ireland to serve in foreign armies for centuries, and these people were always called in Ireland Na Géanna Fiáine which in English means The Wild Geese, the allusion being to the birds' migratory habits.
