Format: Hardcover
One step up from a word-salad this book is odd, it reads like all the notes were thrown up in the air then printed in whatever order they were picked up in. There is probably a book in here, you just need to cut all the sections out then stitch them back together in a coherent order, a job neither the author or editor could be bothered to do.

Lacking in Historical significance and linear pespective 29 Feb. 2012
By Slim Chance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After reading Dimarco's eloquent treatise "War Horse" on the military history of the equine, I was motivated to find another historical perspective on the subject. The sub-title of this book, "Four Thousand Years of the Mounted Warrior" led me to believe there would be relevance to that subject. I am hugely disappointed. Sinclair's writing is dis-jointed, lacking perspective, non-linear and generally uninformative. There is plenty of history here spread out in a happenstance fashion, but not much that pertains to the horse.

By A Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is written by a known pseudo historian who claims one of his ancestors discovered America before Columbus. Going further than the Norse visits to the northeast fringes to North America around 1000 a.d., sinclair claims there was a permanent settlement in the area around Newport, RI as evidenced by a mysterious round structure. It has been proven that this structure is no older than the founding of the Rhode Island colony dating to the mid 1600's and is actually a colonial era windmill. Although this book only briefly mentions this, it makes one skeptical of anything passing as history.

Although not completely inaccurate, the author gets details mixed up while trying to tie the culture of the scots to the American south and west. For example, he claims Andrew Jackson (scots-irish descent) made his home in the mountains of East Tennessee. This is not correct as he lived in middle Tennessee at his plantation, The Hermitage, in present day Nashville. For a scholarly and detailed book of the scots-irish influence on the American south and west, read Albions Seed by David Hackett Fischer instead.

In addition, the lack of footnotes or endnotes combined with factual errors I spotted made me question what was or wasn't true that Sinclair had written.

The style of the book is a disjointed mix of history and myth and a reader without a background in the historical context of what is written could easily be deceived.
