   schema:description "It is the latter part of the 21st century, and dramatic climate change has made life in Ireland almost impossible. The last of the survivors in Clare are being rounded up by the local warlord and put to work in his labor camps. Meanwhile, Tir na n'Og is faced with a refugee problem, and the king of the fairies is not happy about it. Jenny and her new friend, the boy soldier, Pup, go over to Ireland to find out what is happening, and to bring Aengus Og back home where he belongs. But when it is revealed that the warlord who is behind the problem is a member of the Liddy family, JJ is sent to sort him out. But JJ is old now, and his lifespan in Ireland has long since expired. He can't return to Ireland by the usual route so, like the ill-fated Oisin before him, he must resort to the white horse trick. And unlike Oisin, he must stay in the saddle if he is to have any chance of surviving the trip ... The White Horse Trick travels from the now to far distant futures: from world's end to world's beginning."@en ;
