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.

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.

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.

This book should have contained very useful and interesting information on the Scots-Irish in the Carolinas, but instead it reads like a biased diatribe of the vaunted religiosity of the Scots Irish and their persecution under other groups. I happened to see the author at the Scottish Highland games in Atlanta a few years ago, and was further unimpressed with his partisanship. However, I may be a little sensitive to the attitudes unnecessarily inserted into his book, since I lived in Belfast as a protestant American during my childhood, and witnessed first-hand the result of such thinking. I just wish this had been a more academic endeavor.
