collected & edited by Ronald Caplan with Rosie Aucoin Grace • photos • 224 pages
CAPE BRETON ACADIANS COME ALIVE in visits with extraordinary people in a beautiful land. Here are 22 interviews by Cape Breton's best chronicler, told in their own words—in English, with some French stories and songs.
From fishing life to the cooperative movement, from daily life to sorcery and celebrations—conversations and photos offer an intimate portrait of the humour, passion, work life, and heritage of this unique world.
