The Scottish Ambassador: Learning How To Be Scottish in America
Ex-pat Scot Aefa Mulholland travels around the U.S., persuading bemused Americans to teach her how to be a better Scot. From learning how to do Scottish Country Dancing in Honolulu to attempting golf for the first time on a rattlesnake-infested desert sand golf course in a trailer park in Arizona to learning to play the bagpipes in New Orleans, she learns about what it means to be Scottish, what it means to be Scottish-American and what it means to be at home such a long way from home.
