David Kennedy, a member of the Kennedy Family of Scottish Vocalists, made detailed observations of the places, people and social customs of the places visited on this tour.
With his parents, four siblings, and a business manager, he toured "the Colonies" for a period of three years on a professional tour, "singing the Songs of Scotland". Their tour took them through Australia where they visited Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Tasmania, and Adelaide; to New Zealand, and through Dunedin, Invercargill, Queenstown, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland, etc.; through the Sandwich Islands to California and thence by train through Salt Lake City to Chicago and into Canada, where they toured Toronto, Hamilton, Niagara Falls, Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, the Maritimes and Newfoundland.
A great deal of time and distance is covered in this book, and the descriptions of the places and people are very good.
