Eagle's Wings: The Journey of the Ulster Scots and Scotch-Irish
Dr David Hume MBE
Eagle’s Wings is a unique and definitive history of the Ulster Scots people, who have produced pioneers and Presidents, frontier fighters, scholars and men of faith, and who have made their mark wherever they settled.
Dr David Hume MBE, historian and writer, tells the intriguing story of these fascinating people. It is an epic journey, from ancient times, through migrations, battle and siege, the Plantation of Ulster, the eighteenth century, the emigration of thousands to America, and the radicalism which underpins the Ulster Scots as a community. He also looks at the present position of the cultural community which defines itself as Ulster Scots and where it is going in the future.
A celebration of all that is Ulster Scots, this book brings its ancient people to life through lavish illustrations, quotes, biographies and details on historical sites to visit today.
