Robert Dinsmoor'€™s poetry is perhaps the greatest achievement of Scotch-Irish writing in the nineteenth century. His work frames a vibrant culture whose ties of faith, family and friendship crisscrossed the Atlantic. He records people, places and events with humour and compassion, and was rightfully accorded the status of the '€˜Rustic Bard'€™ of New Hampshire.

Dinsmoor'€™s writing encapsulates the hopes and aspirations of migrants asserting their place within a confident, awakening nation and stands as a pioneering articulation of postcolonial American literature. The recovery of his work is important. It underlines the power of art to find pathways between the Old and New Worlds; and how awareness of Scottish literature and traditions could be celebrated and extended in North America.

This collection brings together the long out-of-print poetry of Robert Dinsmoor'€™s, arguably the greatest Scots-Irish poet of the 19th century. A detailied introduction by Scots-Irish experts Frank Ferguson & Alister McReynolds
