Scots Breed and Susquehanna

Hubertis M. Cummings vividly relates the tale of the sturdy and indomitable Scotch-Irish settlers in Pennsylvania. Hardened from their ancient battles against tyranny and injustice in their native “bonnie Scotland,” they struggled to establish a new home in America along and beyond the Susquehanna River. Their passionate love of freedom and will to survive helped them make a life for themselves in a hostile frontier. Their deep faith and spirit would thrive in this region, as they helped to forge the identity and destiny a young nation.
