Ulster Scot historian and writer Dr. David Hume tells the intriguing story of the Ulster Scots from ancient times, through migrations, battle and siege, the Plantation of Ulster, the 18th century, the emigration of thousands to America, and the radicalism which underpins the Ulster Scots as a community. He also looks at the present position of the cultural community which defines itself as Ulster Scots and where it is going in the future. "Eagle's Wings" is a unique and definitive illustrated history of the journey of the Ulster Scots people who have produced pioneers and Presidents, frontier fighters, scholars and men of faith, and who have made their mark wherever they settled. Each chapter features details on historical sites to visit and has biographies on key figures from the periods in question. This is the epic journey of an ancient people with a past to be proud of and a future to shape.
