Watchman Against The World
The remarkable journey of Norman McLeod and his people from Scotland to Cape Breton Island to New Zealand.
“Children, children, look to yourselves, the world is mad …” These dying words of Rev. Norman McLeod display the tenderness and tyranny by which he created his own people out of Scotland’s exiles. As their teacher, judge, minister and taskmaster, Norman bound them to himself and led them through one of history’s great pioneering adventures – from their first settlement in Cape Breton Island to, 31 years later, sailing 12,000 miles to break new ground in New Zealand.
