Book Description

Nov. 15 2000

Although Scots have never been an exceptionally large immigrant group in North America, their presence to the West proved significant in a variety of arenas. In this unique and engaging new book, Ferenc Morton Szasz outlines the many contributions Scots have made to the development of the region.

This book illuminates the many Scottish explorers, traders, adventurers, ranchers, artists, photographers, and writers who helped forge what is perhaps America’s greatest cultural export–the myth of the West.

4.0 out of 5 stars America and the Old West come to life. July 16 2002
By A Customer
This book provided an interesting insight into the Scottish influence in the west, told sometimes in storybook fashion, but still informative and entertaining. Author also provides good references and other suggested readings that are helpful. I would highly recommend this reading especially for those who want to explore Scottish heritage outside of Scotland.
