Lost in the Backwoods

Scots and the North American Wilderness

Jenni Calder

Published by Edinburgh University Press

How is the Scottish imagination shaped by its émigré experience with wilderness and the extreme? Drawing on journals, emigrant guides, memoirs, letters, poetry and fiction, this book examines patterns of survival, defeat, adaptation and response in North America's harshest landscapes.
