Lucille Campey presents a new and powerful case for reassessing the achievements of Lord Selkirk and his Scottish Highlander settlers. Using a wealth of documentary sources, she reconstructs the sequence of emigration from Scotland to the three areas of settlement—Belfast (PEI), Baldoon/Wallaceburg (Ontario), and Red River/Winnipeg (Manitoba). She shows that emigration was carefully planned and controlled, and the self-reliant, determined, and adaptable Selkirk settlers succeeded against overwhelming odds.

Includes many passenger and settler lists, extensive notes, bibliography and index.
