The Highland Clearances

Author(s): John Prebble

Europe

In the terrible aftermath of the battle of Culloden, the Highlanders suffered at the hands of their own clan chiefs. Offering a reconstruction of Culloden, the author recounts how the Highlanders were deserted and then betrayed into famine and poverty. While their chiefs grew rich on meat and wool, the people died of cholera and starvation.
