"Children, Children, Look to Yourselves, The Wor ld is Mad... These dying words of Norman McLeod display the tenderness and tyranny by which he created his own people out of Scotland's exiles, bound them to himself and led them on one of the great pioneering adventures of the 19th Century - to settlement in Cape Breton Island and 21 years later, to breaking ground again in New Zealand. 37 years; 22,000 miles. As their teacher, judge, minister and taskmaster, Norman aimed to 'withdraw the faithful from the menace of the worldy community. In Watchman Against the World, Flora McPherson has brought Norman McLeod's St. Ann's Bay alive as a bustling, integrated, religious and altogether down-to-earth community.
