Comments I'm about 1/3 of the way into My Truth Lies in the Ruins. We met last year (or the year before?) at the Games in Scotland, CT. I would like to "talk" with you about this history . . . as I am looking at the same time into Strachan history. I'm told by Ben Strachan, ret Brit Ambassador to the Middle East, that we lost our lands when Robert the Bruce killed John Comyn because we sided with the Comyns as they were cousins to us . . . as we were cousins to the Celtic Kings of Scotland . . .Later we were cousins to the Stewart Kings through the Earl of Mar's daughters/neices . . .The area where the Douglas holdings were is close to the original Strachan holdings along the Awen River, now called the Avon . . . We also married folks of Norman/ Flemish origin . . e.g. the Edmonstones . . .[See The Edmonstone Chronicles] I am fascinated by your reconstructions . . . and I have been finding in my life a bleed through of early family history . . . Our surname is Pictish, said to be the oldest surname in Scotland. We are a Se

Comments My wife, Kate, and I have friends that live in Douglas. Jim and Lily McKnight live in Ferriers Cottage. We recently attended Jim's daughter Paula's wedding, and for the second time stayed with Jim and Lily. Jim is quite the historian on the history of the area and the highlands and is always pointing out spots of interest. I've had great times walking Jim's dogs through Douglas Park Up to the Larder Tower, past the Douglas Waters and back to town. So when I purchased your book, "My Troth Lies In The Ruins", The pleasure of the read was compounded by the knowing by sight of most all the places of historical note. I enjoyed the book immencely, and am looking forward to the next two. I have a number of pictures from the town, St Bride's, Douglas Park, and the site of Douglas Castle taken this past September. I'll send them if you would like. Thank you for the good read, Sincerely Yours John Walters

Comments My birth name is Morton, my ancestors being found in Ayrshire. I have seen the beautiful ruins of Morton Castle where the Douglas's got their Earls of Morton name from. It is really great to be a member of this historic Clan, also through another family name Sandilands.

Comments I have read "My Truth Lies in the Ruins" and "In the Shadow of my Truth." It is not often that a person gets to read history written from an eye witness point of view. I enjoyed both the books and am waiting for the release of "My Truth a Mist in Time." And, my great grandmother was a Douglas.

Comments I have been filled with such emotion at the writings and pictures on your site. I am, I believe, a descendant of one of the three brothers who fled to the Haugh of Dollar in 1503, William, James, and Thomas, sons of the late Thomas Douglas.They changed their name to that of their parish, Dryfesdale.( Drysdale )I have been trying to find more information but as yet have'nt been successful. My Great Grandfather,and Grandfather were born in Airth. I am facinated by your site and intend making it one of my favourites, and ofcourse buying your books.

Comments My son gave me My Truth Lies in the Ruins and I truly loved the book! It explains so much of the Douglas History. My husband and I are Regents for Clan Douglas in Texas and my husband is third generation born in USA. My family is proud to be a Douglas, such history is so amazing and William LeHardi Douglas was an amazing man, truth and honor was his code. More should take heart and learn from this brave and loving knight! I am waiting for the second book to arrive and anticipate reading it! One day we hope to see the land of my husband's ancestors, the great land of Scotland! God Bless you Deborah, please know that in my family, your books will be handed down through generations to keep the name of Douglas forever!
