Driven by poverty, social inequality and Highland clearances, its people have settled in every corner of the former British Empire and the USA, leaving their distinctive mark on great cities and prairie farmsteads alike. Cutting through layers of myth and sentiment, this remarkable history examines the causes of emigration, charts the important role of soldiers, missionaries and traders, and traces Scotland's formidable contribution to the development of the modern world.
