Nga mihi nui; big greetings. I am really excited to hear about your work from across the seas in New Zealand/Aotearoa.

She is a Canadian who returned to Scotland to examine the lives of her forebears and this book had big resonances for me. The Clearances, alongside the Enclosure movement indirectly contributed to the major immigration surge into New Zealand (as it did for Canada) in the 1850s-1880s.
