A Nova Scotia History in Pictures

  Author:   Sara Beanlands, Travis Crowell,  
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing

With more than 140, never-seen-before photos, Fishing for a Living: A Nova Scotia History in Pictures captures the world?s most dangerous profession. We see up close the men and women (and often children) whose livelihood was derived from the sea. Indeed, it is the sea that provided not only sustenance and a living but shaped every aspect of their lives.

This stunning historical portrait is a tour de force that will appeal to Nova Scotians and tourists alike. It is a visual window into the much-fabled life of Fishing for a Living.
