November Reading List

The following is a list of books that I have on my reading list for the month.

Scots in Canada by Jenni Calder

This book caught my interest because I have a family line, Spence, which came to the United States from Scotland via Ireland and then Canada. This book provides a great overview of the circumstances which led to the migration of Scottish clans from their homeland and the life they created in Canada.

Mayflower: A History From Beginning to End

Thanksgiving is coming soon. This time of year I like to spend a little extra time learning about my pilgrim roots.

One of my early ancestors was George Soule. He was a passenger on the Mayflower and his signature is on the Mayflower Compact.

Victory in Papua by Samuel Milner

This book has been my primary source for the blog series on Fred L. Jacobs.

Samuel Milner did an extraordinary job of giving detailed troop movements which allows a glimpse into daily life of the soldiers who had boots on the ground.

This book can also be found in PDF form from the U.S. Army for free.
