BOOK - Land of the Loyalists, Their struggle to shape the Maritimes
By Ronald Rees

Softcover... 18.95 (C$)
Fleeing the American Revolution, Loyalists arrived in the Maritimes driven by a dream: out of the desolate wilderness of present-day Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, they would carve a distinctive cultural and social landscape. Closer to Britain than any of the American states, and only a short sea voyage from New York, the Maritimes seemed to offer the Loyalists a fresh canvas on which to imprint their ideals. In transplanting their British sensibility, ideas of material culture, and respect for order and institutions, the Loyalist leaders attempted to establish New Ireland, a melding of rebellious New England and loyal New Scotland. (Nove Scotia).

But this dream for New Ireland was never realized. The Loyalist struggle to impose material and social refinements, and to cultivate a sense of civic responsibility, was frustrated by inhospitable land, long winters, and reluctant inhabitants. Still, the Loyalist legacy is evident today throughout the Maritimes - in the architecture of towns such as Fredericton, New Brunswick and Shelburne, Nova Scotia, and in the social and political institutions of the entire region.

This book explores the Loyalists' settlement patters, land distribution, and architectural efforts, as well as the Black Loyalist experience, giving a thorough and engaging look at the forces that created the Loyalist imprint in the Maritimes.
