Mi'kmaq have lived here for hundreds of years; they were joined inthe eighteenth century by Acadians, Loyalists - including Black Loyalists - and settlers from New England, Scotland, and Ireland. 'Historic Antigonish: Town and County' bears witness, in photographs and detailed captions, tothis cultural diversity and its many benefits. This is a book not about la ndscape or politics -- although both have naturally affected life here -- but about the countless individuals whose everyday lives impacted the area'sevolution, people like John Boyd, founder of the Casket; Lottie Melanson, champion sheep-shearer; Alex MacDonald, the 'Klondike King'; and Katie MacEachern, a gifted midwife. From the raising of St. Joseph's Church to the fiery destruction and resurrection of Mount St. Bernard, local events, businesses, and, above all, people are captured and honoured in this wide-rangingtribute to Antigonish town and county." - from the rear cover.

Primarily a mixture of prayer and religious and kinship feasting, open-air communions werean expression of core communal values and basic kin and religious loyaltie s. Particularly between 1840 and 1890, but well into the 20th century as well, the sacramental season and its open-air communions was a dominant symbol in the lives of Cape Breton’s Scots Presbyterians.
