(2),3-135,(1) 8vo, photo-illustrated blue card covers. Dan Soucoup (b. 1949). "From Yarmouth to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia has a rich and colourful linguistic tradition. Other regions may lay claim to more famous phrases such as 'eats, shoots and leaves' but in Nova Scotia we have 'cut, peeled and piled'. That is what you do to pulpwood before you could get paid. Then there's Bummer's Crossing and the bundling bed. And what about the enigmatic 'cut, shoot, and load'? Ask any Cape Breton coal miner about that phrase andyou'll get an earful. [...] This collection is arranged alphabetically and includes over 2000 intriguing names and expressions that have been coined, invented, borrowed, or otherwise stolen by Nova Scotians and used frequent ly in conversation throughout the province. It includes helpful explanations and a wealth of information about many of the more obscure slang phrases and sayings." - from the rear cover. Very good.

Griffin-Allwood, Baptists in Canada 1760-1990 : A Bibliography of Selected Printed Resources in English 323.

Gordon Thomas Stewart (b. 1945, Newport-on-Tay, Scotland).

George Alexander Rawlyk (b. May 19, 1935, Thorold, Ontario - d. November 23, 1995, Ottawa).

"In 1758 and 1759 Governor Charles Lawrence of Nova Scotia issued two proclamations encouraging New Englanders to come to the northern colony. By the outbreak of the American Revolution six years later some 12,000 Yankees, out of a total population of about 20,000, were living in Nova Scotia. Yet when rebellion flared up in the Thirteen Colonies it sparked no similar revolutionary activity in Nova Scotia. A People Highly Favoured of God analyses the response of the Nova Scotia Yankees to the American Revolution and suggests some reasons why this crisis helped precipitate one of the most important social movements in Nova Scotia history — the religious revival inspired by the charismatic preacher, Henry Alline, and known as the Great Awakening.

It has been said that the real American Revolution occured in the decade preceding the military events of 1775-6, and consisted in the 'radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments and affections of the people.' Professors Stewart and Rawlyk argue convincingly that the Yankees who had emigrated to Nova Scotia missed this crucial decade of radical change. The war, therefore, plunged them into an acute crisis in their traditional loyalties and value systems - a crisis which was resolved for them only by the sense of identity and purpose given them by Alline's preaching.

It is over thirty years since the publication of J.B. Brebner's The Neutral Yankees of Nova Scotia. Professors Stewart and Rawlyk now offer a reassessment of Brebner's neutrality thesis. A People Highly Favoured of God represents a notable contribution to recent Canadian and American historiography." from the dj.

Harry Kenneth Thurston (b. March 3, 1950, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

"Harry Thurston has journeyed through Atlantic Canada from Labrador to Sable Island and to the many bays, islands and outports in between, to write about his homeland for such mahazines as Equinox, Audubon and National Geographic. Here is the rich and textured story of the fishermen, the loggers, the housewives, the farmers, the scallop dragger men, the island dwellers, the lighthouse keepers, the coal miners and the everyday men and women who live extraordinary lives in this region by the sea. It is a book about the spirit of Atlantic Canada and a way of life that has been under attack for decades.

The Sea Among the Rocks is a powerful book about important people and their communities. Award-winning author, Harry Thurston takes the reader to Anticosti Island, Advocate Harbour, Cut Throat Island, Tatamagouche, McNutt Island, Bridgewater, Greenwich, River Hebert, Springhill, Big Tancook Island, Mooseland, Dalhousie, Grand Manan, Petit Forte, Sable Island, Lunenburg, St. Paul Island, Bon Portage Island, and other intriguing destinations. Thurston writes passionately about the region's bounty, the environmental destruction and the attempts to protect what's left of our natural heritage. He shows how these concerns for the environment are inseperable from the spheres of community and culture." - from rear cover.
