In the Images of Our Past series.

"Historic Dartmouth is a fascinating glimpse of this charming city's social, economic, and cultural life over the last two centuries. From its beginning as a settlement of British immigrants on an Aboriginal campsite in 1750, Dartmouth's growth was uncertain and sporadic. In 1758,it was used as a temporary billet for Wolfe's twelve thousand troops before his attack on Quebec; in 1875 it was, briefly, the home of the influential Nantucket Whaling Company; and in 1826 the building of the Shubenacadie Canal gave it new life until the coming of the railway in 1870.

Finally incorporated as a town in 1873, Dartmouth's location on the east side of Chebucto Harbour, and its thousands of inland lakes and rivers, made it an ideal place for thriving communities, and a destination of leisure for pleasure seekers. Its 'golden era' at the turn of the nineteenth century is the focus of this book." - from the rear cover.

"For 50 million years gray whales have migrated 10,000 miles along the western shores of North America from their winter birthing lagoons in Baja, Mexico, to their summer feeding grounds in the icy fertile waters of the Bering Sea. Twice hunted to the brink of extinction[...]." - from the dust jacket. This lyrical and beautifully written book celebrates the gray whale. The authors also address the three-way collision pitting this endangered species, the whaling community, environmentalists and the native community that has re-asserted their traditional right to hunt the grays.
