A number of these are books I’ve read &/or are on my to-read list…
How the Scots Invented the Modern World: The True Story of How Western Europe’s Poorest Nation Created Our World & Everything in It
by Arthur Herman
Scottish Highlanders, Indian Peoples: Thirty Generations of a Montana Family
by James Hunter
The Farfarers: Before The Norse
by Farley Mowat
A note of caution around the works of this author…
It is my understanding that Mr. Mowat has been challenged on his statements in his books — to which he has replied something to the effect that he doesn’t let facts stand in the way of truth.
Uhhhhh …. come again???
I understand that statement and I understand its fallacies.
If you read this as his thoughts based on what he’s seen, and providing these locations, artifacts, and references exist, then what he is presenting is theory — and I did find it very thought provoking.
