Robert Dinsmoor's poetry is perhaps the greatest achievement of Scotch-Irish writing in the 19th century. His work frames a vibrant culture whose ties of faith, family and friendship criss-crossed the Atlantic. He records people, places and events with humour, compassion, and was rightfully accorded the status of the 'Rustic Bard' of New Hampshire.

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. 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 post-colonial American literature.

Robert Dinsmoor's Scotch-Irish Poems will appeal to those with an interest in Scots-Irish studies, Irish-American studies, colonial American history, Ulster local and family history, Ulster history and biography and the history of migration and settlement.
