Ella Young (1867-1956), an Irish storyteller of Celtic heroes and magic curses, had a fascinating, overlooked life story.

She guarded weapons hidden under floorboards for Dublin rebels during the 1920s, hobnobbed with W.B. Yeats, shared a flat with Maud Gonne, talked to spirits in the windswept dunes of California's Pacific Coast, and lectured to overflow crowds at the University of California at Berkeley.

A mystical, whimsical woman, she gathered stories from the west of Ireland and took them across the Atlantic when she emigrated to California - alone at the age of 56. This biography is a portrait of a captivating writer, storyteller, mystic, rebel, and immigrant, that provides her insider's view of iconic figures and cultural movements in the two countries where she lived.

""Rose Murphy has found an Irish life story not yet told sufficiently in her new book 'Ella Young: Irish Mystic and Rebel.'"" --Irish America Magazine
