BOOK - An Illustrated History of Nova Scotia
By Harry Bruce

Softcover... 19.95 (C$)

Although Nova Scotia is Canada's second smallest province, it's history is undoubtedly the most complicated, and probably the most horrendous of all. It was to this provinces rocky soil and surrounding ocean that the two superpowers of the sixteenth century , France and England , transported their struggle for power and supremacy; it was here that an ancient and peaceful society the Mi'kmaq, were exploited, corrupted and hunted almost to extinction; it was here that the cohesive Acadians, France's first colonists in the new world, lost their desparate experiment with neutrality and were torn asunder.

It was on this rocky soil that the privaleged loyalists in the American War for Independence struggled to re-establish themselves, where the German protestants, the Scots and Irish came to escape persecution and poverty, and where the underprivaleged blacks sought new freedom.

In fact it was in Nova Scotia that the history of Canada was determined, where a parade of colorful characters - some good and some bad, kings and courtiers, governors and generals; fishermen, adventurers, priests and artisans - lived out their dramas that fashioned our way of life today.
