I recommend this book be read by all Portuguese living in America who were products of Portuguese immigrants. I will never be ashamed of who I am and where I came from..Thank you Mr. Mira for writing about this and trying to let the world know the truth about the Melungeons.
My dna test shows that I do have Portuguese blood and Moorish blood. I have never been told that I had relatives of these extractions. I have not found any relatives who were Portuguese or Moors. There are Portuguese who match my mitrochondrial dna My family comes from Virginia , Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina and Georgia.
I have no way of knowing if this book is right or wrong about Melungeons or anything else , but it is a very interesting book.
You will be presented facts and then you conclude based on the facts presented.
I found this book to be good and entertaining reading on both the Portuguese and the Melongeons.
