Oatmeal and the Catechism: Scottish Gaelic Settlers in Quebec My grandparents came to Canada in the late 1800s from Lewis, Scotland. When I saw this book title, I was hoping for information about life in those early days. I was absolutely thrilled to discover the book included the story of my gandmother and her sister, their journey from Scotland, and their life in Canada. I have communicated with the author, and hope to meet her some day. For me, this book is a treasure!!!!!!!
