Beautifully presented and well researched, the author brings to life a remarkable piece of Nova Scotia history that was all but lost. "Yes, Virginia - there really was a Shubenacadie Canal in Nova Scotia. It extended 115 kilometers, all the way from Dartmouth Cove on the north side of Halifax Harbour, inland through a series ofseven freshwater lakes, to the mouth of the tidal Shubenacadie River and on into the surging Bay of Fundy. One of the greatest engineering feats of the nineteenth century, it required two inclined planes, nine locks, and one deep-cut channel. The canal took thirty-five years to complete and was in operation for a decade." -from the rear cover.

Chapters :
1. The Dream Takes Flight;
2. Touched By Art;
3. Cycling the Locks;

Large 8vo, stapled green ill. card covers, white and pale green lettering to front cover. Introduction by Carmen Moir. "The canal was built to create a navigable waterway from Halifax Harbour to the communities along the Bay of Fundy for trade, settlement, and resource development. The canal was designed to connect the harbour to a chain of seven lakes, the Shubenacadie River, and the Minas Basin using nine locks and two inclined planes. During its construction period the population of Dartmouth great from 30 families to 400 families. The province's first major labour strike occurredf during construction in 1831 when canal workersdid not get paid. Considered an engineering triumph by many, it was a fina ncial disaster for many of its investors. Sections of the canal and its locks have been restored by the federal and provincial governments for recreational purposes and its heritage value." - from rear. Contents: 1.
