Rise Again! The Story of Cape Breton Island — BOOK ONE
by Robert J. Morgan • photos, index, bibliography • 232 pages
THE FIRST FULL-SCALE HISTORY of Cape Breton Island in 150 years!
Readable and informative, Book One takes you from our geological roots to Mi’kmaw life before European discovery, and the building of Fortress Louisbourg—the island’s First Economic Boom.
We see the British and French battle for control, the settling of the Loyalists, the forced marriage of Cape Breton to Nova Scotia—and the birth of Separatism. Taking the reader up to the 20th century, Cape Breton becomes home for Acadians, Irish and Scots—the immigrant soul of Cape Breton.
