Wonderful read Jan. 14 2009
By P. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm not a historian, but I love history and this book approaches the life of Scotland through the perspective of those who lived it. The author presents accounts covering the entire range of Scotland's history allowing the reader to see life, not just facts. Most interesting to me was the attempt to move past major battles and dry accounting of timeline events. This is an interesting and informative book for those wanting to know more about Scotland and her people.

Written contemporary thoughts and insights enlightens and informs March 15 2012
By Bruce Campbell Ogilvie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The sharp and contemporary details that enlighten and inform the events described in many history books - by the people living through these events. Well worth the time to read and then reread as other research exposes the history of our ancestors and their homeland.

Addiction Feb. 19 2012
By hornet5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If your interest in Scotland is addictive, this is a must collection to be on your bookshelf. A reading of these writings gives the reader a feel for the times in which the writing occurs and perhaps a deeper appreciation for Scotland and the Scottish people across the many generations past.

Encounters with a Challenge June 6 2010
By Dag Stomberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book brings together the literary work of many ordinary and also not so ordinary people down through the ages of two millennia.

What a clever idea to 'write' an autobiography of a Country's folk.
The thoughts, aspirations, successes and failures that help the
reader come to grips with the Scottish character then and now.
There is alot to know about Scottish culture, history and society
and this provides a giant step in coming to terms with a written
history of a Country's people and their identity!

Scottish history in small bites March 6 2013
By Charles F. Dryden, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not sure what sort of history you might want in a book like this but it is filled with brief stories of various historical events from written accounts, historical records, and oral tradition in print. A scattered collection that is at times very period specific and interesting and at other times very boring.
