Early Cape Breton — From Founding to Famine
by Robert Morgan • photos • 176 pages
THROUGH LIVELY CONVERSATIONS, TALKS, and essays, this popular educator keeps history alive and accurate!
From the founding of the independent Colony of Cape Breton and the coming of the Loyalists, to annexation to Nova Scotia and the (continuing) idea of separation, this is brisk and informative.
Dr. Robert Morgan tells the story of Cape Breton's early administrators, the devastation of Cape Breton’s six-year famine that tore apart and restructured the island's life, the work and character of its four great surveyors, and much much more.
A pleasure to read.
