Scott Milson (b. 1952).
A collection of anecdotes from small-town Nova Scotia. Includes many nautical and fisheries references.
"From Birchtown and Harbourville, Kennetcook and Oxford, Lincolnville and Orangedale, these stories explore why the people of small communities across Nova Scotia value the quality of life they enjoy. They explain what efforts have been undertaken and what problems stand in the way of building and maintaining viable communities. 'Voices of Nova Scotia Commuties' is packaged along the lines of recognized provincial tourism trails. But, unlike traditional tourist books, it reflects community problems, accomplishments, frustrations, and pride. The author ensures that it is the voices of the people who live in these communities that ring truest, allowing both neighbours and those visiting for the first time to gain a better understanding of life in rural and small-town Nova Scotia." -from the rear cover.
