Enjoyable and Informative
Several years ago, I started reading Bryan Sykes' books - his "Seven Daughters ..." being the first book I added to my library. I have always found Sykes' writing to be very informative and enjoyable - crafted with the lay person in mind. Although you are always aware that underpinning the chapters he has a much deeper knowledge and experience, Sykes has the happy knack of creating a friendly 'fireside chat' atmosphere as you eagerly turn the pages. This book is part travelog (the East to West journey across the US) and part DNA research and discussion - both matters blended seamlessly I might add.
I am an amateur genealogist, 'wanna-be' paleoanthropologist, and DNA 'gene-ealogist' (having taken every test available through FTDNA to bolster but not replace my paper research), and I have a small but rapidly growing library of books on these related subjects. I'm happy to have added this book to my shelves, and I am confident those with similar interests will feel the same.
