Whilst an interest in the overseas Scottish diaspora has grown in recent years, Scots who chose to settle in other parts of the United Kingdom have been largely neglected. This book addresses this imbalance.

A descendant of warriors, chiefs and military men of the Clan MacLeod, James A.F. Macleod led an adventurous life that took him from his birthplace on Scotland's Isle of Skye to the Canadian West. After immigrating to Ontario, Macleod became a lawyer and militia officer before joining the effort to quell the 1870 Red River Rebellion. In 1874, he was appointed assistant commissioner of the newly formed North West Mounted Police and led his troops west to smash the whisky trade and bring law and order to the vast North-West Territories. Macleod smoked the peace pipe with prominent chiefs like Crowfoot and Red Crow, earning their trust as a man who kept his promises. As a policeman and judge, Macleod showed a strong sense of justice, sympathising with the plight of First Nations peoples and challenging the government when it failed to fulfil treaty obligations.

High finance, wilderness adventures, violence, and questionable legal tactics all played important roles in the history of the North West Company. William McGillivray, head of the company from 1804 until 1821, was the most powerful businessman in Canada in the early 19th century. William McGillivray emigrated from the Scottish Highlands to work for his uncle Simon McTavish when he was 20 years old and became head of the NWC in 1804 upon McTavish's death. The period from 1805 to 1814 was a time of expansion and prosperity for the company; however, its decline was even more rapid. Set against the background of the history and legacy of the NWC, this engaging biography tells McGillivray's complete story, from his early years in Scotland, immigration to Canada, and fur-trading successes to his eventual downfall.
