Successive harvest failures in 1835 and 1836 meant that the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland began 1837 with an almost total lack of food for the present and of seed for the future. Severe destitution in 1837 was the result. There is a large body of unpublished source material relating to this destitution, which is presented in this book for the first time. These documents shed light on important wider issues: clearance and emigration, demography, poor law reform, religious questions and the role of the state. They are presened here with an introduction and full explanatory notes.
