Alexander MacDonald guides us through his family's mythic past as
he recollects the heroic stories of his people: loggers, miners,
drinkers, adventurers; men forever in exile, forever linked to
their clan. There is the legendary patriarch who left the Scottish
Highlands in 1779 and resettled in "the land of trees," where his
descendents became a separate Nova Scotia clan. There is the team
of brothers and cousins, expert miners in demand around the world
for their dangerous skills. And there is Alexander and his twin
sister, who have left Cape Breton and prospered, yet are haunted by
the past. Elegiac, hypnotic, by turns joyful and sad, No Great
Mischief is a spellbinding story of family, loyalty, exile,
and of the blood ties that bind us, generations later, to the land
from which our ancestors came.
