About the Author
After a career in news-gathering and extensive travel in Europe, Jim moved with his wife, Morag, and their three children to the island, where, over the years, he has been a lobster fisherman, lightweight labourer, graveyard grasscutter and columnist for journals as diverse as the Washington Post and the Inverness Courier. As well as broadcasting regularly on topics such as Scottish history and island life, he has also written nine full-length works of non-fiction, including two important studies of Scots emigrants overseas.
