Cape Breton’s Christmas

A Treasury of Stories and Memories

  Editor :   Ron Caplan  
  Publisher:  Breton Books

FROM THE HEART OF CAPE BRETON, Christmas radiates through stories by Beatrice MacNeil, Hugh MacLennan, Tessie Gillis, Paul MacDougall, Marie Battiste, Wanda Robson, Rita Joe, Ellison Robertson, and many more. From the Christmas tree in the coal mines to a community roasting turkeys at Bernie’s Bakery; from Christmas wrecked to Christmas saved, and Christmas far from home. Cape Breton’s Christmas is a family keeper  — for anyone who loves wit, celebration and the generosity of Maritimes life.
