Born in Ottawa, Lucille Campey now lives near Salisbury, England. Her father's pride in his Scottish roots stimulated her interest in Scottish emigration to Canada. A graduate of Ottawa University, she later acquired a Doctorate from Aberdeen University for her studies of emigration history. She has written seven books thus far on the Scottish exodus to Canada.
"...a vivid history lesson...the book is a precise telling of the Scottish influence on Canadian life." -- Shelf Life 2009
