About the Author

John Prebble was born in the UK in 1915 but spent his boyhood in a predominantly Scottish township in Canada. He became a journalist in 1934 and went on to become an historian, novelist, film-writer and the author of several highly praised plays and dramatised documentaries for BBC TV and Radio. He died in January 2001.


Prebble describes this almost forgotten episode as a raw cross-section of human aspirations for freedom, noble in its inception, foolish, petty and shocking in its end... Prebble's canvas is immense, his characterisations excellently drawn * Publisher's Weekly *
This is a welcome and long-overdue reissue of the late John Prebble's 1968 classic about Scotland's disastrous venture into creation of a trading colony... His writing is as compelling as are the salutary incidents he relates * Kirkus Reviews *
