From the Cove to the Glen

by Jack MacNeil • Photos • 292 pages


FROM YEARS OF DEVOTION to the cherished storyteller Joe Neil MacNeil come Jack MacNeil’s conversations with Joe, as they drove from village to village, grave to grave, taping Joe’s memories of people and events. Here are the pioneers who settled along today’s Route 4—Irish Cove, Irish Vale, Middle Cape, Big Pond, St. Andrew’s Channel, and Glengarry—and events that shaped communities.

The details are phenomenal—from recent years, back into the 1800s. The best of oral history—these words and photos bring it all to life!
