The story outlines the life of Adam Scott who arrived from Scotland in 1812 to settle in Delaware County, New York State.  Refusing to swear allegiance to the United States in 1817, he left to begin a career as a millwright in Upper Canada. He built mills in Cobourg, Scott’s Mills (Peterborough) and Cavan.

The book also details the arrival of the Irish emigrants in 1825 with the Peter Robinson expedition, their difficulties and Peterborough’s early history.
