Published by Flanker Press Ltd, St. John's, 2011

Bell Island: Dawn of First Light covers the first permanent European settlers who were attracted to the rich soil of the island and to the fish in the surrounding waters. It outlines the accidental discovery of iron ore, the growth of the mining operations to become the largest submarine mine in the Commonwealth, labour unrest and the formation of a union, the factors that led to the mine’s closure, and the tragic impact this would have on the residents. This is also the story of the equally determined women who fashioned the family home in both good and bad economic times.

BOOK - Land of the Loyalists, Their struggle to shape the Maritimes
By Janice Potter-MacKinnon
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 1995
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.

BOOK - Planters, Paupers, and Pioneers: English Settlers in Atlantic Canada
By Lucille H. Campey
Lucille Campey studies evidence of early English settlement in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. Beginning with the Planters and Loyalists of English descent who arrived from the United States in the second half of the 18th century, she goes on to consider the growing influx directly from England after 1815 and ends with the assisted emigration schemes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including those that involved destitute children. Detailed information relating to ship crossings and settlement locations is distilled to provide new insights on how, why, and when the four Atlantic provinces came to acquire their English settlers. What attracted them? Was the rapid industrialization taking place in England a major push factor? How did trade links influence settlement locations?
