Description

‘Vignettes” short, significant, story that focus on a single person, place, or event. Nova Scotians have longed for stories of their province’s past that came in smaller packages; most busy people don’t have time to devote to the four-hundred-page historical expositions that abound. Most assuredly, the work of scholars is important, but if history is going to have a broad appeal; if the historian is going to reach beyond academia, the servings of Nova Scotia’s story must fit the times, and that often means smaller portions.

The author has searched for history Nova Scotians may have forgotten, or perhaps have never known. Vignettes spans the making and growth of Nova Scotia from the earliest Colonial times (1606 in Port-Royale) to well into the 20th Century.  Each of these stories is true, and each is relevant. And each one firmly connects us to the broader national story … and can be read with confidence that one is learning true Nova Scotia history and the people who contributed to it.  Accordingly, the author offers them with the hope that they will also be read with and for enjoyment.

There are 71 stories in this publication; fifty-four are about individuals great and small… some well-known, others less so … yet all made great contribution to the Nova Scotia of today, The rest are 17 stories on Nova Scotia and the surrounding ocean… the North Atlantic . Some are uplifting, others are tragic events – all were important to our development as a province.
