Details: Product Description From the number of kilometers of coastline to the stories behind those weird place names (hello Ecum Secum) to profiles of Joe Howe and Alexander Keith, there is no book as comprehensive as the Nova Scotia Book of Everything. There is also no book more fun. Well known Nova Scotians like Premier Rodney MacDonald weigh in on subjects like the five Nova Scotians he admires most; Ashley MacIssac tells us his five greatest Nova Scotians; Joel Plaskett gives up his favorite hangouts. The worst weather, Nova Scotia slang, the greatest's all here! Whether you are a life long resident or visiting for the first time, there simply is no other book that delivers the goods. If you love Nova Scotia, you'll love the Nova Scotia Book of Everything. Don't forget to read the Book of Musts! Review "A marvelously eclectic compendium—historic, contemporary, geographic, economic, meteorological, sociological, anthropological, political, positive, negative, important, trivial and just plain fun—that goes a long way to explaining who we are." —Stephen Kimber, author, Sailors, Slackers, and Blind Pigs "I wanted to see if the contents lived up to the front cover boast that it included everything you wanted to know. I read it cover to cover. This is a book worthy of a series." —Yarmouth Vanguard About the Author John MacIntyre is a journalist, a writer, and an editor. His work has appeared in the Globe and Mail, Montreal Gazette, and Canadian Lawyer, and he writes a syndicated column, "Figuratively Speaking," which appears in more than 70 newspapers in the United States and Canada.
