"The town of Wolfville and the village of Grand Pré, nestled side-by-side in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley, are hometo some of North America's most fascinating history and culture -- history and culture that are very much alive in the area today. From peaceful, tre e-lined streets to wind-swept marshes to awe-inspiring Cape Blomidon, the 'Land of Evangeline' also boasts a varied and beautiful landscape, justly celebrated by poets like Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Bliss Carman, as wellas artists, visitors, and residents. In this lively book, adorned with a w ide selection of visuals from public and private collections, historian andauthor Brian Cuthbertson traces the evolution of the land and the people. He tells of the Acadian settlers who turned the marshlands into dykelands, the New England Planters who founded Wolfville, the determined Baptists whoestablished Acadia University, and the shared growth of town and gown. In the final section, he offers guided walking tours of present-day Wolfville and Grand Pré, with easy-to-use maps, colour photos of the area's most significant features and text that weaves past into present." - from the rear cover.
