The story of the Clearances is one of the destruction of entire communities and of large-scale emigration. Some were able to adapt and exploit the new opportunities; others lost everything. Based on a vast array of original sources, this pioneering book is the first to chart this tumultuous saga in one volume, with due attention to evictions and loss of land in both north and south of the Highland line. In the process, old myths are exploded and familiar assumptions undermined.
