Cape Breton’s Christmas — A Treasury of Stories and Memories
selected & edited by Ronald Caplan • 48 stories • 164 pages
FROM THE HEART of Cape Breton, Christmas radiates through stories told by Tessie Gillis and Paul MacDougall, Marie Battiste, Wanda Robson, Fr. Roman Dusanowskyj, Jim St. Clair, Verna Murphy, Rosie Aucoin Grace, Ellison Robertson, Mabel Bell, and many more.
From a fellow’s first Christmas in the coal mines to a community roasting turkeys at Bernie’s Bakery, to a party in the Steel Plant; from Christmas wrecked to Christmas saved, at home and away.
Cape Breton’s Christmas is a year-round family keeper.
