Written by and published by Alexander Mackenzie in 1883, and then republished with an new Introduction by Ian MacPherson in 1946, this is a facsimile of the 1946 edition.

The Highland Clearances of the early 19th century were either an inhumane eviction of the old, the infirm, the poor and the powerless from lands which they farmed by tradition, or they were the necessary corrective to an inefficient and hopeless system of farming which subjected both landlord and tenant to poverty.

Over the years the 'correct' point of view has changed back and forth, but for anyone seeking a sympathetic view of the fate of the tenant before the relentless hand of authority and property, this history by Mackenzie will suffice. It treats each region separately, detailing the fate of hundreds and thousands of poor farmers forced to leave the lands they long had farmed for an unknown fate. It will be sure to arouse your anger at such callous behavior.
