"From the grandest, most ornate church to the tiniest, most humble chapel, Cape Breton Island's houses of worship possess a timeless charm. In these pages, we join Susan Hyde and Michael Bird as they travel the winding roads of Cape Breton - along the windswept coast, through sheltered river valleys, and up rugged peaks- on an inspirational tour of over sixty remarkable churches. The authors' outstanding photographs and informed commentary reveal the architectural and historical significance of these beautiful structures and provide an affectionate record of Cape Breton's hallowed timbers. Both native Cape Bretoners and visitors 'from away' will be sure to treasure this wonderful tribute to the Island's unique sacred buildings and the people who made them sanctuaries of solace and inspiration, worship and celebration." - from the dj.

Includes 65 churches in Baddeck, Arichat, Grand Mira, Mabou, Middle River, Boularderie, Creignish, and many other communities.
