Summary:In 1871, John Devoy, a young Irishman fighting for Irish independence, came to the United States in exile. Yet even while across the ocean, this Fenian greatly influenced Irish affairs. Terry Golway's suspenseful and assiduously researched biography of Devoy chronicles a lifetime of activism, in which he garnered tremendous financial and moral support within the United States for the cause in Ireland. Devoy was instrumental in both the Easter Rising of 1916 and the creation of the Irish Free State.
