The history of the Highland clearances by Alexander Mackenzie ( Book )

"In the nineteenth century many of the inhabitants of the Highland glens were cleared out, often by forcible eviction to make way for a more profitable tenant -- the Great Cheviot sheep. Families had to leave the homes where they had lived for generations. Thousands emigrated over the ocean in the hope of a better life...The effects of it are still being felt in Scotland -- and in the countries where the unwilling migrants settled. Written while the effects it describes were still unfolding, Mackenzie's impassioned History brings the distress of the age unforgettably before the reader" -- Back cover

The history of the Highland Clearances by Alexander Mackenzie ( Book )
26 editions published between 1912 and 2003 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Highland Clearances of the early 19th century were either an inhumane eviction of the old, the infirm, the poor and the powerless from lands which they farmed by tradition, or they were the necessary corrective to an inefficient and hopeless system of farming which subjected both landlord and tenant to poverty. Over the years the "correct" point of view has changed back and forth, but for anyone seeking a sympathetic view of the fate of the tenant before the relentless hand of authority and property, this history by Mackenzie will suffice. It treats each region separately, detailing the fate of hundreds and thousands of poor farmers forced to leave the lands they long had farmed for an unknown fate"--Container

History of the Mathesons : with genealogies of the various families by Alexander Mackenzie ( Book )
8 editions published between 1900 and 2005 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Mathesons in the fourteenth century rivalled their neighbors the Mackenzies, but the aggression of the MacDonalds in the fifteenth century broke their power and reduced them to a more limited or minor status. Here, MacBain first deals with the origins and traditions of the chiefly branch of Bennetsfield and the chiefship. He then turns to the Mathesons of Lochalsh and Attadale, including not only the Scottish but also the Canadian branches. He then considers the families of Matheson of Iomaire, of Glas-na-muclach, of Sutherland, and of Shiness, Achany, and the Lews. There are extensive appendices dealing with controversial issues related to the Mathesons, their history, and their geneology. Finally, there is an account of the Matheson tartan and the armorial bearings of the family. Mackenzie's first edition is presented as well because it contains material which was not included in the larger, second edition
