Editorial Reviews

"From the perspective of a born-and-raised Maritimer who has now lived more than half of my life in Nova Scotia, it's images like these that remind me why I came here and, more importantly, why I stayed. This captivating photo collection serves as a compelling reflection of who we are and why we've chosen to call this province home." —Lindsey Bunin

"As a journalist and photographer for nearly 30 years, I have seen and photographed countless images that speak to the beauty and spirit of Nova Scotia. That so many other photographers — everyday people, who, like so many of us, appreciate what our province has to offer visually — have taken such captivating images to add to the story of our province is a wonderful thing. We Love Nova Scotia — whats not to love?" —Tina Comeau, editor, Tri-County Vanguard

"As a veteran journalist and the author of seven books about Nova Scotia, I can let you in on a little secret — the most captivating glimpses of our province come from the regular people who live here and love it. You'll find that out for yourself in We Love Nova Scotia. From a perfect, frozen wave at sunset, to a lone angler bathed in summer sun, this is an intimate family album of our beloved homeland." —Jon Tattrie, author of Daytrips From Halifax
