Though a small country, Scotland has produced many famous sons and (fewer) daughters. All the men and women described in this book were born in Scotland but made their names outside their native country. Many will probably be associated in most people's minds with the countries in which they achieved fame, such as the Adam brothers, Thomas Telford, Alexander Bell or Andrew Carnegie, for example.
