Description

While Nova Scotia may be known as “Canada's Ocean Playground,” the tributaries and meandering streams that flow through the province have a significance that runs just as deeply.  In Nova Scotia's Historic Rivers, Joan Dawson takes us on an insightful expedition around the province. From the original portage routes of the Mi'kmaq, such as the Margaree and Shubenacadie Rivers; to shipbuilding, logging, and mill-based industries along the LaHave and Sackville Rivers; to the settlers and communities that flourished along their banks, Dawson demonstrates the myriad ways in which Nova Scotia's rivers have always been imperative to the sustenance and survival of the province.   Featuring over 50 archival and contemporary photographs and illustrations, Nova Scotia's Historic Rivers is a fascinating glimpse into the settlement an development of the province, and the ever-evolving rivers that continue to shape its landscape and culture.
