The story of the Scots-Irish is one of the struggles and achievements of an American immigrant group that existed for only a short period, whose descendants continued to make their marks on the young country for generations. From the North of Ireland to the backwoods of the American frontier, the tale of the Scots-Irish includes a massive exodus to the New World, where they founded communities in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and the Irish Tract of North Carolina during the Revolutionary War era.Containing nearly six thousand names of documented settlers of the primarily Scots-Irish settlements of Virginia and North Carolina, Chasing The Frontier includes materials from church records, military records, early wills and deeds, and newspapers of the time. For the frontier families, life was a daily test of endurance and hardship, but the Scots-Irish also found time for horseracing, gambling, and socializing, and the migration of this hardy race and the lure of the frontiers of Kentucky and Tennessee led to the founding of churches and state charters, and elections to some of the highest offices in the country.Chasing the Frontier is a snapshot of everyday life for the pioneering Scots-Irish in early America.

As someone who tries to read every book published on the subject, I was quick to buy this book, and quick to read it, but it proved a major disappointment.

I was expecting a comprehensive treatment of the subject based on the title, but that's not what this is; instead, it is a dreary recitation of the author's family history, limited chronologically and geographically to the author's area of interest. If your area of interest happens to include the Huston family, or the Shenandoah Valley, or early Kentucky, it MIGHT be of interest to you, but it's doubly damned by a schizophrenic narrative style and a serious lack of connection to earlier, better works on the subject.

If you've done any genealogical research, you have doubtless endured long tomes full of names and dates, strung together by a valiant effort to create an interesting historical narrative; that's essentially what this is, and if the surnames and placenames are not relevant to you, it is pure unrewarding drudgery. If they are, you might be interested, but don't expect to be entertained or edified.

Great, wonderful, fantastic! Can't say enough about this book. It is an excellent tool
for the researcher and genealogist tracking migrations of the Scots-Irish. Describes this
group of people from their arrival in America, where they settled, why they moved and
the hardships endured. Most importantly, hundreds of names are provided throughout
the book indicating where certain individuals and families settled; what happened to them;
and following some from Pennsylvania, into Virginia; to the Carolinas, Tennessee and
Kentucky.

This is a pretty good overview of the immigration and spread of the Ulster Scots who settled the American Frontier in the the 18th Century. Lots of name references and a good index for those of us tracing our ancestry. The first chapter is a good introduction to the movements of Scots from the Scottish Lowlands to Ulster. Having read this, I have a better idea what to look for in more focused books.

This is a great book for genealogy folks to understand WHY it says "Irish" when I know (and WANT to be Scotch) !

Great information about the Scots-Irish families (including names) migration from Scotland via Ireland to the American colonies. Where they first entered, and the different migration routes they took into Virginia, North Carolina, and points west. Includes maps and other information about family names and the counties in which they settled. Enjoyed and recommend to others or Scots-Irish heritage.

Good overview for genealogists.

I've only read about1/4 of the book so far but find it both interesting and useful. Contains family names in their first moves in the U.S. given by county, very useful for those people who are hunting ancestors. I think there is enough other content to give a broad picture of this critical early migration from the British Isles.
If you are researching your Scots-Irish ancestry this book will provide a lot of back ground information and may even point you to exactly where you need to look for your own family history.
