Item description for Our Most Priceless Heritage: The Lasting Legacy of the Scots-irish in America [UNABRIDGED] by Billy Kennedy...

Overview
From their earliest arrival in America 350 years ago the Scots-Irish left a lasting legacy, a heritage that was firmly grounded in freedom and democracy. The pioneering instinct of this proud race from Ulster and Scotland opened up America from the Atlantic coastline to the Pacific shoreSea to Shining Sea. The history of the United States is interwoven with the outstanding personalities from the Scots-Irish diaspora and the distinctive characteristics of a people who pushed the fron- tiers to new horizons. This comprehensive study of the Scots-Irish in America by Northern Ireland author Billy Ken- nedy has created a much greater awareness of the accomplishments and the durability of the hardy settlers and their families who moved to the New World during the 18th century and created a civ- ilization out of a wilderness. President James Buchanan, son of a Co. Tyrone man, said: My Ulster blood is my most priceless heritage. This is a sentiment echoed by many, many people in the United States today!

Reviews - What do customers think about Our Most Priceless Heritage: The Lasting Legacy of the Scots-irish in America [UNABRIDGED]?

Nothing new  May 24, 2008
I'm rarely disappointed in a book.
This one arrived carefully shrink-wrapped and immaculate but the contents are nothing but a low-level compilation of the work of others. Maybe it's because I've worked on my family's Scots-Irish genealogy for almost 20 years.....but with other authors I'm constantly finding new information and it's documented, which much of Kennedy's isn't.

The editing also leaves much to be desired. 'new England' and exclamation points stuck in any old place and several lines that are printedwithoutanyspacesbetweenthe words are just some examples.

And I think I'll ask my reading specialist daughter to do a reading level assessment of this book. I'll wager it'll come out appropriate for upper middle school.

I'm glad I didn't order the several others of his I was tempted by when making my decision. Disappointing. A pot boiler.




 
very good   May 7, 2007
I do genealogy on my family most of whom came ashore with the Scots-Irish in the early 1700's. this book has good information and it's important for all to know our real history and not some baloneywood version of history.
