Who Really Discovered North America?
The sixth-century voyage of St. Brendan to America is the most fascinating of sea legends. Could the myth, of an Irish monk and his crew sailing across the Atlantic in a boat made of leather, nearly a thousand years before Columbus, have been reality?


In pursuit of a legend, Tim Severin staked the lives of himself and his four companions on following the exact methods used by the seafaring Irish monks in constructing and sailing their vessel from the West coast of Ireland across the Atlantic Ocean to Newfoundland. Persuasive proof of the validity of the Brendan myth, Severin's hazardous expedition remains a supreme testament to the resilience of the voyaging spirit in some of the most hostile conditions known to man.


The Brendan Voyage music is a suite for orchestra and Irish (uilleann) Pipes played by soloist Liam O'Flynn and based on the book by Tim Severin. The uilleann pipes represent the boat and carry the listener before the wind, through ferocious gales, over gigantic waves, through floating pillars of ice... evoking the journey from a small Kerry harbour to the Faroes, the cliffs of Mykines, to Iceland, the freezing waters of Labrador and finally, to safe harbour in Newfoundland.

Tara can now offer special discounted corporate rates for bulk purchases of this unique and beautifully boxed book and the accompanying soundtrack CD depicting this fascinating voyage.
