Impressions of Cape Breton (Revised edition)

  Author:   Brian Tennyson    
  Publisher:  Cape Breton University Press

First published in 1986, now revised and with new chapters added, Impressions of Cape Breton gathers together descriptive impressions of Cape Breton Island, dating from 1634 to 1941, as selected by historian Brian Douglas Tennyson. Some of the impressions are overwhelmingly positive – “Sydney harbour is justly considered one of the finest ports in America” – some are harsh – “nothing but the most absolute necessity can possibly induce me to pass another year here” – and some downright amusing – “In no place of similar size in British America, will you find gentlemen possessed of more general information, or ladies of better tone and manners.”
