A magnificent history of this era in the New Hebridean world.
Accurate, well-researched and enlightening.
For the first time I can remember, the Missionaries don't come out smelling like roses!
Well done Kath

I have been working with my son on his Family Tree Project. This book was great because we are a decedents also from Captain Donald Macleod. I have not completely read the book yet, but as was mentioned there was a part of the family history which was missing and that would be my side.
If this could be passed to Katherine Stirling Kerr Cawsey I could fill in some missing family history.
Thank you,
Terri
