Editorial Reviews

Review

"A useful addition to our store of knowledge of Highlanders in eighteenth-century America."--Journal of American History


"Very well written and informative . . . Parker succeeds in establishing the importance of the Highland Scots at Darien in relation to their impact on other colonies, as well as the state of Georgia's history."--Journal of Southern History


"Anthony Parker's study of Scottish Highlanders in Georgia fills a gap in Georgia history. Parker gives a complete account of their background in Scotland and their adventures in Georgia. He writes in a clear, straightforward style that carries the reader through the complexities of life in the Highlands."--Edward J. Cashin, author of Governor Henry Ellis and the Transformation of British North America


"Parker's book is to be warmly welcomed, especially in the light of its obvious determination to place the pre-Culloden population flow to Georgia in an explicitly imperial context. . . . Those interested in the much larger scale departures in the years after 1763 will certainly find it rewarding, not least because the author highlights the irony that just as the value of Highland populations was beginning to be undermined within the region itself, the notion of their utility within a broader imperial framework was in the process of steady confirmation."--Scottish Historical Review

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This small book had good, solid research and provided much information which is just not commonly known about early southern settlements of Scots. I recommend it to anyone researching family of this most southern area. Previous to reading this book, I had not been aware that Scots were encouraged to move/settle areas of the U.S. to serve as a buffer against other groups and the English. It doesn't surprise me, considering how the English always treated the Scots while they were in Scotland. This illustrates perfectly the tough, ruggedness of Scots and how they have survived and thrived anything thrown at them.
