Volume One in the Ulster-Scot Historical Series. "Much has been written of the contribution of the Scotch-Irish to the making of the United States of America -- the ten Presidents of direct Scotch-Irish stock, the frontiersmen such as Davy Crockett, household names such as Sam Houston of Texas and Stonewall Jackson. But why were these people in America at all? Why was it that they or their fathers or grandfathers had not remained in Ireland to make history there? It may have been true that the Scotch-Irish kept the Sabbath and everything else they could lay their hands on. It may also have been true that, when they reached America, the Scotch-Irish fell on their knees and worshipped God and then fell on the Indians. But if their outlook was narrow and harsh -- and it was, surely, at least partly due to land-hunger and the natural instinct of self-preservation -- was it not mainly due to a harsh background? This study answers questions such as these and tells why and by what means more than ahundred thousand Scotch-Irish men, women and children uprooted themselves and opted to cross the wide eighteenth-century Atlantic Ocean to settle in a land whose dangers were painted in horrific terms by the local newspapers." - from the dustjacket.

"[Dodd] has a history of a modern Marco Polo, has sailed the seven seas, seen mutiny and revolution, escaped the firing squad in the Nicaragua revolution, and been shipwrecked seven times with very narrow escapes with his life.

"He has made three trips around the world by sea with a record of eighty-seven ports on one ship, the cruise lasting eighteen months. He has sailed around Cape Horn nine times and is known to be the only man in history to set foot on the mainland of Cape Horn itself. He has made nine trips through the Panama Canal and after his great adventures on the sea he turned to prospecting for minerals. This took him all over Canada and Newfoundland and in parts of the United States." - from introduction.

Index. 8vo, red cloth spine lettered in black, blur paper covered boards. "In this lively and engaging new biography, Harry Kelsey shatters the familiar image of Sir Francis Drake. The Drake of legend was a pious, brave, and just seaman who initiated the move to make England a great naval power and whose acts of piracy againsthis country’s enemies earned him a knighthood for patriotism. Kelsey pai nts a different and far more interesting picture of Drake as an amoral privateer at least as interested in lining his pockets with Spanish booty as inforwarding the political goals of his country, a man who became a captain general of the English navy, but never waged traditional warfare with any success. Drawing on much new evidence, Kelsey describes Drake's early life as the son of a poor family in sixteenth-century England. He explains how Drake dabbled in piracy, gained modest success as a merchant, and then took advantage of the hostility between Spain and England to embark on a series of daring pirate raids on undefended Spanish ships and ports, preempting Spanish demands for punishment by sharing much of his booty with the Queen andher councillors. Elizabeth I liked Drake because he was a charming rogue, and she made him an integral part of her war plans against Spain and its armada, but she quickly learned not to trust him with an important command: he was unable to handle a large fleet, was suspicious almost to the point ofparanoia, and had no understanding of personal loyalty. For Drake, the mar k of success was to amass great wealth, preferably by taking it from someone else and the primary purpose of warfare was to afford him the opportunityto accomplish this." - from the dj.
