Legacy: The Scots Irish in America

Alister McReynolds

In this new and vivid account of the achievements of the Scots-Irish in America, Alister McReynolds tells the story of these ordinary, yet somehow remarkable individuals in a lively and human fashion. The people portrayed were not saintly but were possessed of the kind of inventiveness and energy that literally ‘moved mountains’.

This book is compulsory reading for anyone who is interested in the contribution made by the Scots Irish to building the United States of America. Legacy focuses on states and characters that up to now have been somewhat overlooked and speaks of the saga of the tough Scots Irish who protected, settled and built American landscapes all the way from Maine to southern Georgia.
