Description - Scotland Farewell by Donald Mackay

The story of the Highland Scots who sailed to Pictou, Nova Scotia in 1773 aboard the brig "Hector". They voyaged to escape famine, intolerable treatment from their landlords and above all to search for a land of their own. They had been promised prime farming land but found only virgin forest. Somehow, with great courage and tenacity, and with the help of the native Indians they survived and their achievements encouraged further shiploads of emigrants to join them. This piece of Canadian history is also part of the history of Scotland and the Scottish people.
