Description

By David Craig

In the Clearances of the 19th century, crofts - once the mainstay of Highland life in Scotland - were swept away as the land was put over to sheep grazing

Many of the people of the Highlands and islands of Scotland were forced from their homes by landowners in the Clearances

Some fled to Nova Scotia and beyond. David Craig sets out to discover how many of their stories survive in the memories of their descendants

He travels through 21 islands in Scotland and Canada, many thousands of miles of moor and glen, and presents the words of men and women of both countries as they recount the suffering of their forbears
