Item description for Scots in the USA by Jenni Calder...
The map of the United States is peppered with Scottish place-names and America's telephone directories are filled with surnames illustrating Scottish ancestry. For the 27 million Americans with Scottish roots, it should come of no surprise that their ancestors helped shape American history from its beginnings. Jenni Calder's Scots in the USA reminds of us of the enormous role played by Scots in the foundation and creation of America, and provides new insight into Scottish-American history.
