"An old-fashioned tale of tall talk, high ideals,and irresistible appeal . . . You will not read a historical thriller like this all year . . . [Egan] is aA master storyteller."A aBoston Globe aEgan has a gift for sweeping narrative . . . and he has a journalists eye for the telltale detail . . . This is masterly work.a a New York Times Book Review A  In this exciting and illuminating work, National Book Award winner Timothy Egan delivers a story, both rollicking and haunting, of one of the most famous Irish Americans of all time. A dashing young orator during the Great Hunger of the 1840s, Thomas Francis Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony for life. But two years later he was aback from the deada and in New York, instantly the most famous Irishman in America. Meaghers rebirth included his leading the newly formed Irish Brigade in many of the fiercest battles of the Civil War. Afterward, he tried to build a new Ireland in the wild west of Montanaaa quixotic adventure that ended in the A great mystery of his disappearance, which Egan resolves convincingly at last. A aThis is marvelous stuff. Thomas F. Meagher strides onto Egan's beautifully wrought pages just as he livedapowerfully larger than life. A fascinating account of an extraordinary life.a a Daniel James Brown, author of The Boys in the Boat A  aThomas Meaghers is an irresistible story, irresistibly retold by the virtuosic Timothy Egan . . . A gripping, novelistic page-turner.a a Wall Street Journal A
