Immigrants to America were often targets of stereotyping and the Scotch-Irish are no exception. Editor Warren R. Hofstra challenges the stereotypes associated with the Scotch-Irish through his compilations of essays in his most recent book. This collaboration offers a new perspective on Scotch-Irish immigrants and focuses on areas they settled, such as southwestern Pennsylvania. Readers interested in immigration history, American history, or the Scotch-Irish history in America will find the book informative and thought provoking.
