This work he continued untilhis death in 1911. Afterwards the subscriber, who had long felt the import ance of preserving the history of his native township, acquired the memoranda left by Prof. Doane and has put them with many changes and extensive additions into their present shape. The Archives at Ottawa, Halifax, Liverpooland Yarmouth, as well as of Shelburne ard Barrington have been searched an d the answers to many questions of general and local historical interest are here made known. [...] Historians of Nova Scotia have generally, through ignorance or lack of perspective, ignored the earlier and more substantial pre^loyalist settlement and its impor- tance to the Province, while invariably featuring the refugee loyalists and their miseries. In Shelburne Countyin particular the older township was for the time complete- ly overshadowe d by the new one. We have attempted to present these factors of township and provincial foun- dations in their true and proper proportions in this work." (from Crowell's preface).

"New Brunswick Sea Stories by Dorothy Dearborn goes from miracles to mayhem as the author presents story after story reflecting the times and traditions of two centuries of shipbuilding and shipping in New Brunswick. 'From the Bay of Chaleur through the Gulf of St. Lawrence and into the Bay of Fundy, our waterways are filled withuntold stories. Many of those stories are under the sea, in the more than 1,900 shipwrecks resting in their watery graves.' Phantom ships, sea monsters, mutiny, murder find their places beside stories of those Iron Men of the sea who sailed their ships around the world time and time again in the most dangerous circumstances. Heroism has its place here as well, in truth the stories in this book reflect the good and the bad that follows us throughlife ... wherever we are." - from rear cover.
