Best scottish book to read if one wants all the history of the Scots in the US and Canada. Even had mention of my Clan in it for Queen Mary II cruise ship!

This book compiles achievements of Scots. It is a voluminous compilation, but pleasant to read, nonetheless. I was fascinated to read all that is in this book. If you are an ethnic Scot, this book will really open your eyes to what Scots have done to improve the world, usually very quietly. I recommend this for ethnic Scots, and others who might be interested.

One reviewer ripped this book for some factual errors. Great, buddy, where is your book, correcting the mistakes? What, you didn't write one? Armchair quarterbacking, are we? No book is perfect. I like this book a lot. If you want to extend your awareness into somewhat deeper levels, Cracker Culture: Celtic Ways in the Old South,Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America,How the Scots Invented the Modern World: The True Story of How Western Europe's Poorest Nation Created Our World & Everything in ItHow the Irish Saved Civilization (Hinges of History), and Redneck Shaman all cover redneck- American Scot- culture, at a somewhat deeper level. Celtic influence is very much a part of the US, and shaped US national character considerably. There are identifiable Celts in graves in Xinjiang province, China. The Scots got around. This book is the best I've seen, showing how far they went, and what they did. No, it's not perfect, but it's surely very inspiring. Well worth reading, even with its minor flaws. The James Bond character was based on a Scot, for example, who wrote a very humble autobiography. Niihau, the last Hawaiian speaking part of Hawaii, is owned by a Scots family.
Duncan A Bruce has written an eminently readable book that will surely appeal to even those of non-scots extraction.To those of us who are scots,this fact-filled,yet fluid book gives us cause for immense pride.The list of Scottish achievements is simply unbelieveable.Highly recommended.
