Truly unique, it is a mixture of philosophy, Irish folklore and the battle of the sexes all with charm, humour and good grace. The Crock of Gold contains 6 books: Book 1 – The Coming of Pan, Book 2 – The Philosophers Journey, Book 3 – The Two Gods, Book 4 – The Philosophers Return, Book 5 – The Policemen, and Book 6 – The Thin Woman's Journey. All rotate around the astonishing story of what happens when Pan shows up in Ireland, what Angus Og does about it, and what becomes of the Daughter of Murrachu who gets caught in between them. A mad-cap quest ensues as fairies, leprechauns and a philosopher being hunted by the police all get involved in the antics of the two gods.
I love this type of imaginative story telling, and there are old fashioned illustrations.

It is a beautiful book, an Irish fairy tale with the view of the world of 100 years ago. The philosophy is a little longwinded but that is normal for philosophical ideas. Still, I enjoyed it in bits and pieces, reading modern books in between these chapters.

Found the crock of gold at the end of the rainbow?

The language of 1912, much more long winded than todays. Very difficult to speed read the book. Great story.
