The Mark of the Scots: Their Astonishing Contributions to History, Science, Democracy, Literature, and the Arts (Google eBook)
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.

Well, *I* enjoyed this book. If only because so much of it is crap. I appreciate being proud of being Scots, as my grandfather was, which makes me what.. 1/4? Lovely. But honestly, if you're going to chest thump about your heritage, and trust me I do it all the time, at least make most if not all of your book accurate. There are a number of folks listed in here who are proudly scots.. and hey.. weren't. You can't be Scots by association darling. Nor can you be Scots by wishing. But if you believe wishing and association makes for a lovely Highlander? This is a great book for you. Although ...there are quite a few Scots who WERE and ARE Scots and who's deeds lead to the greatness that is Scotland and it's descendents listed in here. But you really need to sort the wheat from the chaff. It's a decent read though.
