Morgan then guides us from the British-and-French battle for control of the island and Britain's deliberate schemes to withhold opportunities for significant growth, through the opening of Cape Breton to provide a home for the Loyalists, the forced marriage of the Colony of Cape Breton tothe Colony of Nova Scotia - and with that the birth of the never-ending Se paratist movement. Book One takes the reader up to the twentieth century asCape Breton becomes home for Acadians, Irish and Scottish - the immigrant soul of Cape Breton - preparing the ground for the Second Economic Boom in Book Two, as the distinct Cape Breton personality emerges and world marketsare found for Cape Breton's coal and steel. This is a marvelous book - ric h and accessible - and built to last. Robert Morgan has devoted his life toCape Breton. As Senior Historian at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Hi storic Park, Director of the Beaton Institute archives, and Professor of History at Cape Breton University, Dr. Morgan fought to preserve local heritage properties and to keep the island's story alive." - from the back cover.Very good. 12.50
