    Born Fighting: A Real Treasure

    Being of Scots-Irish heritage, I was extremely pleased with this book. For the first time I began to fully understand the gift my ancestors have given me. I now look at my remaining family members and those who are no longer with us with a much greater appreciation, admiration and respect. I am definitely highly recommending this book to anyone who treasures their family in all its subtleties and complexities.<BR/><BR/>James Webb has created a very readable book. It reads like fiction rather than non fiction yet is highly informative, thought provoking and obviously well-researched. Bravo, Sen. Webb!

    Deeply moving and informative yet easy to read

    This history of the Scots-Irish is for everyone who treasures the rugged individualism and spirit of the first Americans and our founding. Tracing the culture from early Scotland to the present, you will see how the values of the Scots-Irish have helped form America in the past and continue to teach us valuable lessons even now.

    A very well written scholarly work.

    A little repetitive but a very interesting theory well documented and convincing.
