Here is the first-ever celebration of all things - and all people - of Scottish descent.
Today there are almost 28 million people of Scottish ancestry in the world, over 12 million of whom reside in the United States, about 4 million in Canada, and 5 million in Scotland. Scottish accomplishments throughout history in every field of endeavor - from science to the arts to politics and exploration - rival those of even the largest ethnic groups: Scots have been significant in most of the major inventions of the past three centuries, including the steam engine, the telegraph, the telephone, radio, television, the computer, the transistor, and the motion picture; People as diverse as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles de Gaulle, Katherine Hepburn, Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor, Immanuel Kant, Sir Laurence Olivier, Elvis Presley, Edvard Grieg, John D. Rockefeller, and Ty Cobb could claim Scottish ancestry; and Warsaw, Madrid, La Paz, and Stockholm have all had mayors of Scottish descent.
The Mark of the Scots contains thousands of facts and is fully annotated. It is a comprehensive and readable book that deserves a place on the shelf of every genealogist, Scottish-American, and history buff.
