    According to one review, it would be welcome by those who valued high standards of genealogical research and delighted in the romance of history. Equally important, from the genealogist's point of view, is the fact that the fifty or so main families selected for inclusion are thoroughly representative in character and are the progenitors of untold numbers of people living today. As might be expected of such a work, the narrative traces the families from their earliest recorded origins all the way up to the end of the 19th century.
      "Dr. Taylor has written a work fitted to interest and fascinate a public as wide as the Scottish people. . . ."-- The Scotsman
