Father Greg—A Life of Greg MacLeod
Father Greg MacLeod lived a life devoted to Cape Breton Island, all humanity, and God. He loved good food, friendship, folk music—and he was always ready to dance. Rooted in his birthplace of Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, he was a voracious world traveller, seeking knowledge to bring home to his economically troubled is- land. All the while, wherever he landed, Greg organized for Community Economic Development through co-operative action and worker control. His travel companion over forty years, biographer Daniel Doucet inherited Greg’s papers and private journals, which vividly expand this intimate portrait of a lifetime spent stimulating positive development in Cape Breton Island, and beyond. Includes 24 colour photos from the life of Greg MacLeod—one of the last of the Cabbage Patch Priests.
