Product Description

Media: DATA CD - 1 CD
Author: M. Morley
Year: (1909) 2006
ISBN: 1897338244
Publisher: Archive CD Books Canada

Is this just another early 1900's travel book? Well it might be except for the extraordinary story telling ability of the author, Margaret W. Morley. Margaret was an American who came to Nova Scotia with a companion, and who traveled the length of the province, including Cape Breton, recording her impressions of the surroundings and of some of the people she met. She illustrates her adventures with 16 beautiful black and white photographs and three maps.

What lifts this book out of the ordinary is Margaret's ability to make you feel as if you're right there with her, seeing the rugged scenery for the first time and smelling the strong, salt laden, air. Her descriptions don't stop at the superficial either. The basic geology is described in easy to understand terms and she retells the local legends and tales as if they were happening today.

If you are looking for a really good book which will give you a feel for life in Nova Scota at the very beginning of the 20th century - you have just found it.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
