They came into early Nova Scotia from many backgrounds, carrying the village culture, missionary ideals, political dreams, economic ambitions and ordinary hopes of the eighteenth century. Preachers and privateers, teachers and soliders, merchants and farmers , these men and women founded communities and planted seeds that have made a distinctive contribution to local and regional identities in the Maritime Provinces.

This latest volume in the Planters Studies Series features fourteen chapters by writers and scholars in the field, including Richard Lyman Bushman, Robert McLaughlin, Daniel Conlin, David Murray, Peter Haring Judd, David Jaffee, Philip Girard, Eldon Hay, Barry Cahill, Kenneth Paulsen, Nancy Vogan, Patrick Rogers, M.A. MacDonald and Julian Gwyn.
