KIMBER, Stephen. Loyalists and Layabouts : The Rapid Rise and Faster Fall of Shelburne, Nova Scotia, 1783-1792. (Toronto) : Doubleday Canada, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (10),xi-xiii,(3),1-335,(1). Maps in text. 8vo, blue cloth with metallic lettering to spine.

"The few hundred Loyalists who gathered at Roubalet's Tavern in New York one night in 1782, shared a nightmare of the past and a dream of the future.

In the aftermath of the American Revolution, they found themselves abandoned by the king to whom they had promised their loyalty, and unwelcome in the land that had so recently been their own. They had no choice but to flee, but they were determined to build a new and better home for themselves elsewhere.

On the rocky shores of Roseway Bay on the south coast of Nova Scotia, beside one of the best harbours in the world, they would found a new and improved New York City. it would be cosmopolitan, but more refined, more royal, more loyal and certainly more exclusive than the place they were leaving forever.

At first, all seemed to go according to plan. Shelburne, as it was called, quickly became the fourth-largest city in North America. At the time, Nova Scotia governor John Parr grandly described it as 'the most considerable, most flourishing and most expeditious [city] ever.. built in so short a time...'

Within the decade, however, the Loyalists' dream city was well on tis way to becoming a ghost town. What went wrong?

This extraordinary and yet little-told episode from our nation's past is brought to exciting life by [Kimber]. Combining painstaking research and a novelistic flair for narrative, he charts Shelburne's 'rapid rise and faster fall' through the intertwined experiences of an eclcectic collection of its early settlers, from aristocrats to freed slaves, colonial officials to local entrepreneurs." - from the dust jacket.

"The loyalists who gathered at Roubalet's Tavern in New Y ork on the night of November 16, 17872, dreamed of building a new and improved New York City on the rocky shores of Roseway Bay, Nova Scotia. The citywould be cosmopolitan, but more refined, more royal, more loyal and certai nly more exclusive than the one they were now preparing to leave behind forever. At first, it seemed as if their dream would come true. Within the decade, however, Shelburne was a wasteland of abandoned homes and shops. What happened? Vividly told through the intertwined narratives of an eclectic collection of its early settlers, 'Loyalists & Layabouts' is the fascinating story of Shelburne's 'rapid rise and faster fall'." - from the rear cover.
