LOCHABER EMIGRANTS TO GLENGARRY
For anyone interested in the history of the Scottish people in
Scotland and North America, this book is essential reading. In Canada
and the United States today there are tens of thousands of descendants
of Highland Scots who left Lochaber around 1800 to settle in Glengarry
County. This book deals with the conditions in Scotland before
migration, settlement experiences in Glengarry, and the
spread of these Scots-Canadians from Glengarry to the American and
Canadian wests. There are fur trade and Métis connections, and even
ties with the Caribbean. As well as colourful articles, this book
contains a wealth of genealogical information, family trees, maps,
photographs and other illustrations.

and New World Highland Bagpiping
John G. Gibson
Old and New World Highland
Bagpiping is a stimulating and controversial book which also provides a
comprehensive biographical and genealogical account of pipers and
piping in both Highland Scotland and Gaelic Cape Breton.
The result of over thirty years' oral fieldwork among the last of the
Gaels in Cape Breton, as well as an exhaustive synthesis of Scottish
archival sources, this book shows that traditional community bagpiping
in the Old and New World G'idhealtachdan was, and for a long time
remained, the same. John Gibson explores the distortions introduced by
the tendency to interpret the written record from the perspective of
modern, post-eighteenth-century bagpiping.
of a Paper Sleuth
by Hugh P.
For more than 25 years, Hugh has roamed the highways, attics and
basements of Ontario seeking out the often forgotten, usually
unappreciated treasures of our documentary heritage.
Combining the skills of a great detective with patience and tenacity, he rescued many fragile records of our experience. His passion for
history has been infectious, enlisting the help of many in the cause,
and triumphing over bureaucracy and indifference.
His achievements have been real and numerous. His exploits, though, are
the stuff of legend.
