The Highland clearances were a dark period in Scottish history. Hundreds of families were removed from their ancestral homes, many left without viable alternative living or working arrangements. A solution, favoured by the Scottish landlords, was to help these Scots migrate to America. This fascinating book continues the story by examining the role played by the emigre Scots in developing modern day North America.
