Patrick Seller was a factor for the Countess of Sutherland during the clearances of the Highlands of Scotland. "The clearances were carried out with ruthless efficiency, and the number of people who suffeered from them was too large to be ignored. The Sutherland Clearances became notorious...The trial of Patrick Sellar in Inverness in 1816 was conducted with a bland contempt for justice, and successfully transferred his guilt to the man who had been bold enough to accuse him of malpractice...Here is a tale of tragedy-a tragedy brought about by the blind accumulation of ancient motives, by inhumanity and greed, and sheer stupidity. The tragedy is indisputable, unrelieved, and irreparable. " Frontispiece is a full-color reproduction of a painting by John H. More. Four pages of b/w photos. Index.
