Books Info:

Camerons of the Glen free pdf This historically correct novel follows the story of Donald Cameron, who left his ancestral home in Lochaber, Scotland, in 1854 to make a life for himself in the new colonies. After learning the skills to run a sheep station with his uncles in Penola, South Australia, Donald and his brothers crossed the Tasman to become the earliest pioneers in the Lake Wakatipu area of Central Otago, New Zealand. He took up the lease of the Nokomai and Nevis Valleys and the family battled the snows, heat, floods, rabbits and isolation for 90 years. During this time the Nokomai was also being mined for gold. It is a history of the courage, determination and fortitude of our Scottish pioneers, who left their homes in the Highlands and settled this land to give us our homes.
