BOOK - The Nova Scotia Planters in the Atlantic World, 1759 - 1830
Edited by T. Stephen Henderson and Wendy G. Robicheau

The early Maritime Provinces were at the centre of a struggle for supremacy in the Atlantic World - "ground zero in the battle for North America," writes Jerry Bannister of Dalhousie University.
