A. D. Boutilier

Alex D. Boutilier was born in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton during WWII, and grew up in the shadows of the mines during his early life and as a teen. His interest in theatre began in school when he was involved in several stage productions while attending high school in Sydney Mines; later he acted in performances put on by the Dartmouth Players in the early 1990s.

He has a keen interest in the culture, customs, and traditions of diverse societies and has travelled extensively throughout England and France visiting medieval churches, museums, archeological sites and ancient ruins. He has also toured all British and French colonial fortifications in eastern Canada and Ontario. Alex believes that history is not fixed in time; that it is constantly changing as new information is discovered.

His favorite authors include social historians, such as J.C. Furnas; cultural writers like Arthur Koestler; the literary critic, Harold Bloom; and his favorite playwright is, of course, the great bard, William Shakespeare.

Alex also loves studying, researching and writing social history, which he finds highly informative, and suggests that it can also be “unexpectedly hilarious” at times.

Alex studied at Saint Mary’s University and graduated with BA degrees in English and Psychology, as well as an MA In Atlantic Canadian Studies. From 1998 to 2005, he was an instructor for the Saint Mary’s University writing Centre. This book is his first trade publication, which is based, in part, on his Master thesis at SMU.

His lifelong occupation was in sales and marketing for several industrial corporations. He currently lives in Fall River, NS with his wife, Rose.

His first book on colonial history of Nova Scotia (Maritimes) was The Citadel on Stage, published in 2015; followed by 14th Colony to Confederation, which was first released in 2017. He is currently working on third book in the trilogy on colonial life about the ordinary people who eventually but remarkably became the what Howe called the ‘middling class’. Prior to this  evolution there were only three groups, the rich, the poor and the military classes.This came about just before the mid-nineteenth century and continued into the 20th as the middle class became more prominent, even dominate in many phases of life, including within the workforce, politics and government/civil service.

John O. O’Brien

About the Author

John O. O’Brien, author of the latest and most definitive book on Oak Island,  was the eldest of ten children, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the close of WWII. His father, a pharmacist and to whom this book is dedicated, served in the Canadian Armed Services during that war and was a writer as well. John was only twelve years old when he first heard of the treasure of Oak Island, and visited the island with his father in his early and later teens, well before the causeway was constructed. As a result he had more than the usual boyhood dreams of pirates and buried treasure. Add to that the fact for much of his life he lived the wanderlust of adventure, spending many years in the great Canadian north, first as a logger in a remote region of B.C., but most as an underground miner in northern B.C. and the Alaskan panhandle..

 

At age twenty-two he served with the Canadian Army in West Germany during the cold war, but the call of the wild was still in his blood, so he returned to Halifax, and after finishing high school and attending Dalhousie, he returned to the north country for another twenty years – plus sixteen more in Ontario, Africa and Nova Scotia – a total of thirty-six (36) years underground, beginning as a laborer, but working his way up to mine superintendent. There is little John has not witnessed underground.

 

Along the way he developed a related hobby – prospecting – and founded the Nova Scotia Prospecting Association. He is also a genuine sourdough, beginning with a claim in the remote Cassair mountains of B.C., where he built a log cabin in Grizzly Bear country and worked the creek bed with a 44-Magnum on his hip. His current ‘man-cave’ in the basement of his Bridgewater, N.S. home resembles that earlier log cabin and is self-sufficient in all ways! But O’Brien also attained other skills from thousands of nights spend in remote locations before TV and the internet: a love of reading and the honing of his story-telling skills, which propelled him to write this current book. In the tradition of the great story-tellers, the manuscript weaves back and forth before revealing its ultimate conclusion.

After fifty-five years, many tens of thousands of miles, countless dozens of books devoured about Oak Island, other world mysteries and the Mesoamericans, John had much of the book in hand, but it was the support of his family (a few of which are also writers and poets, who encouraged him to complete the task) as well as a breakthrough in recent archeological research. The latter finally linked ritual mathematics with the findings on the island itself and cemented the conclusions found in this publication. Oak Island, simply put, is an underground operation! Some have suggested this story is the true ‘W-5’ plus one of Oak Island, the only original theory with supporting evidence and arguments that answers the who, what, where, why and when, as well as how – in a unique and comprehensive way.

His early schooling was All Saints: St. Peter’s Boys School, St. Vincent’s, St. Mary’s, (St. Ignatius) Loyola, St. Michael’s, St. John. He performed on the radio early in life as The Junior Strolling Vagabond.

In 1947, he graduated from Teachers’ College, Fredericton and taught in St. Andrew’s, Escuminac, Leonardville and Minto where his Cross Country teams won seven provincial titles and in 1955 a Canadian Championship. In Track and Field his athletes set a number of provincial records. He was later inducted into the Minto Sports Wall of Fame.

Earlier, he had been a member of Sports College and the Toronto Red Devils under Lloyd Percival, and still later a member of the Saint John Big Four, which won the Maritime Track and Field Championship in 1953.

Frank played trombone in the Saint John City Cornet Band, the sousaphone at U.N.B, and the clarinet at Camp Aldershot. He held the rank of Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps.

He was known by his students, many of whom teach throughout Canada and beyond, as having a wonderful sense of humour and great skill with the English language, both of which are amply represented throughout his latest work.

Over the years, he wrote many articles and two books: Bishop Beck And English Education, and Creating An Educational System For England And Wales. In 1992, he was awarded the University Medal for Excellence in Teaching. He was a member of the Board of Governors from 1989-1992, as well as Acting Dean of Education on two occasions.

Success on the Edge: portrait of a small town

 

 

FREE SHIPPING FOR SPRING: until May 30, 2018 ... and 20% off as a bonus,... great regional history for north-western PEI... and a book all small towns need to read and keep in their local library for reference. Speaks to the factors that allow some towns to thrive, while others struggle to survive!

 

What makes Tignish, Prince Edward Island, a unique and important community? When so many smaller communities are but mere shadows of what they were a hundred years ago, why is Tignish still thriving and developing?

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Drawing on her knowledge of Tignish’s history, as well as many years of living in and observing this community, Elizabeth Cran analyses the factors that have helped it grow and thrive into the 21st century. Her work also illustrates clearly that other communities can retain or even regain a measure of independence in an age of globalization. Residents of small communities anywhere on this continent, as well as members of governments and local organizations concerned with them, will find much food for thought and suggestions to adapt in this important little book. It is also hoped this book will inspire other communities, through their local writers or historians, to emulate the work of E. E. Cran, thereby preserving their own local record. It is a book that every small town library and civic administration office should have on their shelves. Foreword by Gert Morgenstern, Thomas More Institute for Research in Adult Liberal Studies. This title is also an important historical account of settlement in north-western PEI and fore-runner of a later collaboration related to the Co-Op movement in the Maritimes, published by Goose Lane Editions.

Barbara DeLory

Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Barbara DeLory is married to Cullen and has raised four children. She received her MLS from Dalhousie University in 1985 and was employed as a librarian at Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources for ten years, retiring in 1998.

Old Halifax is a walking city, as is downtown Dartmouth. So much is accessible on foot: the parks, the city sidewalks are filled with interesting pieces of public art. But there seemed to be little documentation of this art, apart from wonderful stories by Lou Collins on old Halifax through his newspapers articles… he became the lamp lighter.

With proper research she thought perhaps she could write a book about this public art, expanding it to include the gems that are found in the towns, suburbs and rural villages in the larger municipality. After many hours (and years) of interviewing, searching, questioning, and taking advice from “the keepers” of the institutions that house all this literature the quest was accomplished: Three Centuries of Public Art: historic Halifax Regional Municipality came to fruition.

She has dreamt of residences in Paris or Venice, but has travelled to those far away places for visits only, always returning to the city she has called home for a lifetime.
