Millions of Scots have left their homeland over the last 400 years. Until now, they have been written about in very general terms. Scottish Exodus breaks new ground by following particular emigrants, drawn from the once-powerful Clan MacLeod, and discovering what happened to them and their families. This compelling account of Scotland’s worldwide diaspora is based on unpublished documents, letters, and family histories, as well as the author’s travels. It is a tale of disastrous voyages, famine, dispossession, and the hazards and hardships of pioneering in faraway frontiers. It is also the moving story of how individualsseparated from Scotland by hundreds of years and thousands of milescontinue to identify with the small country where their global journey began.
