I found this book to be very informative. It provides some information genealogically and describes the historical perspective of the region. I bought both the Carolinas and the Tennessee book and found that there was repetition. Therefore, I recommend buying one book on the Scotch-Irish written by Mr. Kennedy.

As an experienced genealogist I was perhaps expecting a bit more on the serious side of research from this volume. It was an interesting read but left me wishing that it had been more inclusive and detailed.

I did not find this book to be helpful. I thought it was unorganized and the lack of footnotes or other citations made it useless.

Billy Kennedy has written 4 books about the Scots-Irish. I have them all.
Unfortunately the information is mostly redundant. They should have all
been combined into one larger volume.
