a book anyone interested in the Clans of Scotland would find quite informative. Seasoned historians alike could learn much from Fitzroy McLeans' book about the Highlanders. His approach is fresh, his timing is superb, his views keenly discriminating. To the origins of the Scottish Highlanders his facts are unequalled. A must for any historian or genealogist studing the names of Scotland
After the Epilogue, it has a quickie Clan and Tartan section, so the book is everything for the person wishes to learn a little more than 'Braveheart' about Scotland. Likely one of the best in this range of lots of photos and a good start on its history.
This book was great. I received it as a gift from my Good-parents and have used it as a reference in my own research and browsed the picture numerous times for the last year or two. I finally sat down and read it from cover to cover and was amazed. I have read numerous books on Scottish history but never realized how Lowland focused those really are. This book shows it from the Highlanders point of view. It helped to show that not all Scots were Highlanders and they didn't get to write many of the history books. Yet history is told by the victors and the lowlanders took over the historic stage. This book helps to bring that balance back to history. This is more than a reference book with great pictures. It truly is Scottish history from a new perspective and very appreciated. A must for Scottish fans, especially for those of Highland descent.
