While too few know her name, many know the songs and poems of Lillian Crewe Walsh, author of Cape Breton’s classics and ballads that have joined the world song tradition. She grew up in Neil’s Harbour, lived on Scatarie Island and in Glace Bay –a proud Cape Bretoner who never lost touch with her Newfoundland roots. Includes 48 Ballads and poems, and “A Conversation about Lillian Crewe Walsh.”

Ronald Caplan has served as interviewer and photographer for Cape Breton's Magazine for twenty-five years. He has received the Barbeau Award of the Folklore Studies Association of Canada, Nova Scotia's Cultural Life Award, the Canadian Historical Association's Award for exemplary contribution to the Oral History of Cape Breton and an honorary doctorate from Cape Breton University. His work is best known for keeping the Cape Breton story alive through oral testimony and images. Living at Wreck Cove on the Cabot Trail, Caplan is the author of several books and the publisher of Breton Books.
