The publisher's launch of this book was on June 28, 2007 at the Halifax Memorial Library.

"Following the path first charted by 'The Mapmaker's Eye', in which Joan Dawson examines the development of early Nova Scotia through maps, 'The Mapmakers' Legacy' carries on, plotting the province's growth through the careful examination and analysis of maps from the nineteenth century. An exciting time in Nova Scotia's history, the nineteenth century saw the first serious attempts to gain knowledge of the entire province, its resources and its inhabitants. Early in the century, maps reflect the settlement that was still taking place, the roads being built to link the settlements , the increasingly sophisticated defenses under construction, and the attempts to identify the resources on which development would depend. In the second half of the century, the maps begin to change; suddenly, they depict the development of industries, the establishment of railways and shipping lines, and the growth of towns where enterprising manufacturers and merchants were setting up business.

The mapmakers of the nineteenth century have indeed left us with a one that Joan Dawson uses skillfully to trace developments in our province that today are so easily taken for granted. " - from the rear cover.

The Rideau Canal in fact only has 1 2 miles that are effectively called canal, the other 124 mile system follows lakes and streams. Yet the Rideau has played a primary role in the settling of Canada. It now is a major tourist attraction, and scenes of hundreds of people skating on the Redeau in the nation's capital is as familiar to Canadians as photos of Parliament Hill. The editor and others realized that there was a wealth of material on the Canal but it was laying idle in public and private collections. This is an attempt to bring a substantial selection of photos and drawings together, juxtaposed with the rich history of the canal and the communities along the water way, and show case it all in this fascinating pictorial history of the Rideau.
