In From Ulster to Carolina: The Migration of the Scotch-Irish to Southwestern North Carolina, H. Tyler Blethen and Curtis W. Wood Jr. recount the long trek of the Scotch-Irish from their adoptive Irish homeland to the mountains of southwestern North Carolina and the challenging obstacles they encountered along the way. The authors examine the religion, occupations, living conditions, social life, and customs of the Ulster Scots who chose to make new lives in America and describe their important influence upon early American agricultural practices, as well as the many other ways in which those migrants from the Old World to the New left the indelible stamp of their culture upon the Tar Heel State.
