BOOK - The Acadians Before 1755
By Régis Brun
First edition published by Régis Brun, Moncton, 2005
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton 2012

BOOK - Historic Charlottetown, Images of our Past
By Julie V Watson
Published by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax
Proudly known as the "birthplace of Canada," Charlottetown has been a provincial capital since 1765. The town owes its distinguished history not only to the well-known role it played in Canadian Confederation, but also for its development as the commercial centre and chief port of Canada's smallest province, Prince Edward Island. Historic CharLottetown brings history to life through historical black and white images and descriptions of the town's steady development up to the end of the Second World War. Award-winning author Julie Watson describes the careful town plan that resulted in Charlottetown's grand public squares; the continual struggle to maintain crucial transportation links to the mainland; the rich cultural life that led to the town's connection with two of the nation's best-loved artistic figures, L. M. Montgomery and Robert Harris; and of course, Charlottetown's role as host of the first discussions on Canadian union in 1864. Charlottetown is truly one of the nation's historic provincial capitals.

BOOK - Historic Summerside 1900-1970
By Ian Lawrence
Published by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax
Historic Summerside looks at the many roles the Prince County capital has taken on since its incarnation as a mercantile and service centre in the early 1900s-from becoming the world headquarters of the lucrative silver fox industry to its transformation into a military town with a world-class air force base. Besides well-known businesspeople and community leaders like R.T. Holman and Wanda Wyatt, Summerside residents have left an indelible mark on the history of the province-and the country-through their passion for sport, heritage, and culture. Brilliant photographs from the Read and Sears studio archives, as well as from individual and family collections, illustrate the highs and lows of this town's fascinating and dynamic history.

BOOK - Those Splendid Girls, The Heroic Service of Prince Edward Island Nurses in the Great War
By Katherine Dewar
Published by University of Prince Edward Island, Island Studies Press, 2014
In their day, the many Island women who served as nurses in WWI didn't see themselves as heroic. But 100 years later, and knowing better the horrors they endured in that war, this book salutes the courage of all Canadian nurses who served and redresses a century-old wrong: the absence in the historical narratives of Prince Edward Island -- and of Canada -- of the contribution of nurses to the First World War. At war's end, many Island nurses were unwilling to swap their wartime autonomy and authority for housework or poorly paid nursing positions on P.E.I.; instead they took up senior positions in nursing schools and in hospital administration, most often in the "Boston States" and in California, and through these, they achieved lasting contributions to the profession of nursing in North America in the 20th century. A valuable resource for genealogists. ISBN 978-0-9190130-80-3    More information
