BOOKS - "Fast Sailing and Copper Bottomed", Aberdeen Sailing Ships and the Emigrant Scots They Carried To Canada 1744-1855
By Lucille H. Campey.

The days when Aberdeen's fast sailing and copper bottomed ships carried emigrants Scots to Canada are brought to life in this fascinating account of the northern Scotland exodus during the sailing ship era.

Taking readers through new and little used documentary sources, the Author finds convincing evidence of good ships, sailed by experienced captains and managed by reputable people, thus challenging head on the perceived imagery of the abominable sea passages in leaking old tubs. And by considering the significance of ship design and size, she opens a new window on our understanding of emigrant travel.

Instead of concentrating on the extreme cases of suffering and mishaps, to be found in anecdotal material, Campeys approach is to identify all of the emigrant sea crossing to Canada made on Aberdeen sailing ships.
