First of all it is not quick reading and secondly, a lot of people are not interested in the origin of names. I am because it is so interesting to learn that names we consider to be very Scots or English or Italian, or what ever , actually have their origins from the countries which invaded them. For instance, in the case of the Scots the country was invaded by the Romans, the Vikings, the French and one clan name has Flemish roots I learned.
When the invaders stayed and intermarried, they left definite imprints of their culture which in turn became incorporated into the culture that was invaded.
List of Scottish clans
There were some interesting facts about the major clans; however, I was hoping the book would list out the septs associated with each clan. I was disappointed to find my ancestral clan was not in the book. Nonetheless, it is a good jumping off point for those who are interested in Scottish clans and their historical significance. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Surprised that so many clans were listed. It's a great read and a real study.
With Amazon's Kindle Books I can read on my tablet, laptop or desktop -- wherever I happen to be working or waiting. Amazed at how much time I have enjoyed while waiting in doctor's offices, etc. This book has wonderful information regarding the history of many clans in Scotland.
It discusses the families and some of their history. If possible, the information provided even leads up to current families and where they live. This is a book I can use for reference when reading about Scotland and its history. It provides great insight into the struggles this country, and its inhabitants, endured in the past. All clans in one book with good details on each.
Very well organize and set up for easy reading and understanding. One person found this helpful. So, I found a bit of history about the clan of my wife and my brother in low. Not too much though but that's not the aim of the book.
It offers just basic information which for myself at this stage was fair enough. This is a good book to see where your name originated from. See all 59 reviews.

It includes a well written history of the origins of Scottish clan society, including the early invasion periods and settlers, as well as a rather extensive overview of many, many Scottish Clans and their roots, name origins, key historical figures and events linked to them. A glaring omission for me as a non-professional genealogical researcher, as well as a just p Good Little Resource with History on Scottish Clans Anyone with Scot-Irish Ancestry will appreciate this nice little reference book.
A glaring omission for me as a non-professional genealogical researcher, as well as a just person of interest, is the lack of an index or glossary. However, every reference resource must be easily and quickly researchable. Sep 19, Jacquie Jerrard rated it really liked it. Average Not enough of the interesting clan stuff.

Oct 12, Sharron rated it really liked it. I am currently working on my Family Ancestry and this is the greatest resource, for those of us linked to Scotland of long ago. Very exciting to discover an ancestor, then find more information about them in this book!
The stories about the individual Clans are short but cover enough data to provide a picture of some of the highlights of their history. Putting this on my Read shelf is deceptive, it will be referred to many more times in my quest to find my Ancestors! Dec 30, Country Goose rated it liked it. Interesting An entertaining historical read of my own surname.
