Previously published as 59 Stories, this new edition brings back into print Bruce Nunn's collection of quirky stories. With his entertaining style and penchant for library and word-of-mouth research alike, Nunn introduces readers to the province's claim on some world-famous stuff, including Moby Dick, mutton-chop sideburns, and the very first Donald Duck comic. The collection includes chapters on the interesting origins of words like "Bluenose" and "Acadian" and strange homegrown inventions like the telephone-flashlight. Nunn's passion for history and the unusual make Nova Scotia's Curious Connections a must-read for anyone looking to add a little quirk to their knowledge of Nova Scotia's past.
