Description

Open Rogues and Rascals to any page, and you'll find yourself drawn into the fascinating lives of ordinary Maritimers. A natural storyteller, Bob Kroll relates more than 200 true tales of our very own ancestors, and introduces us to heroes, failures, murderers, and soul savers who bring the everyday history of the Maritimes to vivid life.

The stories in Rogues and Rascals are loosely arranged into five sections, but can be read in any order you please. With tales from the 1700s through the mid-twentieth century, there are plenty of good starting points--a crime-ridden town on Prince Edward Island where residents take justice into their own hands; a daring escape from the Nova Scotia penitentiary; the tale of a New Brunswicker who smuggles tea for fun and profit; a captain whose ill-timed fit of laughter lands his entire crew in prison...and that's just to name a few. Interesting, unusual, and always entertaining, these historical anecdotes are an enjoyable window into the feats and follies of Maritimers of the past.
