This novel of dramatized history portrays the hardship faced by 19th century immigrants as our young British colony evolves towards Confederation.
It’s 1825 and Chief Archibald McNab has eluded his creditors in Scotland and escaped to Upper Canada where he convinces the government to entrust him with the settlement of a township in what is now Eastern Ontario, 60 kilometres west of Ottawa.
He tells his immigrant Highlanders that he owns the township, and attempts to impose feudalism. The struggle between the settlers and their Chief continues for 16 years. And there’s romance! McNab’s piper has a turbulent relationship with an Irish lass whose independence challenges his beliefs about women and takes his heart on a wild ride!
Much has been written about the duel between John Wilson and Robert Lyon that took place in Perth, Ontario on June 13, 1833. But apparently not all has been revealed. Author Mulholland claims to have uncovered an account written fifty years after this fatal encounter.
The day before the duel, Lyon agreed to apologize for assaulting Wilson if the latter would acknowledge that the letter he had sent from Bytown (Ottawa) was not intended to denigrate Lyon’s character. But on the morning of the duel, Lyon reneged on his promise. It’s believed that Lyon’s Second, Henry Lelievre, convinced him to meet Wilson on the Field of Honour. But is that what really happened? The answer lies within.
