"Offers a survey of "men and things" as they really are in Cape Breton today. The farther one journeys westward of the Strait of Canso all the more apparent does the lack of knowledge of Cape Breton and the Cape Bretoners become. From our Ain Folk and Others it will be readily realized that, despite the immense material development which this part of the Dominion has undergone within the past generation or so, the march of intellectual progress has in nowise slackened off. Nor has material-mindedness banished either the spirituality or the warmth of soul which characterized the doughty pioneer ancestors of 'our ain folk'".- front dj flap. Chapters : 1.
