5.0 out of 5 stars Scots Wha' Hae, September 15, 2004
This review is from: Now's the Day and Now's the Hour: Scotland Remembers the Alamo (Paperback)
This is a noteworthy contribution to the history of the Alamo, the people of Scotland and the powerful American folk music that evolved from the melding of the two. Carl Peterson writes in an easy, conversational manner based on thorough research about the forces that brought the Scots to the New World and shaped their contributions to the growth of the United States. A surprising number of influential Americans were of Scottish ancestry and as a group maintained their cultural identity through language and folk memory. The heroism of William Wallace and King Robert Bruce echoed in the Texian revolt against European tyrrany. The story of the war for Texas independence is also described in the lyrics and music of the time, and the CD to which this book is companion (Scotland Remembers the Alamo)is not only sheer good listening but fascinating it its historic documentation.
