BEBB, James T. Saga of the Rugged Islands. [Lockeport, Nova Scotia] : The author, 1993. First Edition. Pp. (6),1-256,(2). With 10 b&w photos as well as maps and other illustrations in the text. 8vo, printed white card covers iwth blue lettering to front, blank spine.

James Trevor Bebb (b.1926 Berlew, Wales - d. 2006).

The author, once the owner of what surely was the only Cape Island lobster boat in all of Wales, here continues the maritime history of Lockeport, Nova Scotia begun in Quest for the Phantom Fleet. While the book suffers somewhat from the diffuseness common to local histories, this is largely recompensed by a felicitous prose style.
