Outpost PortraitsAuthor: Allison Mitcham
Publisher: Nimbus Publishing
Equally home to tragedy and beauty, Nova Scotia’s islands are buoys in a nearly “sea-locked” landscape. In this revised edition, Mitcham showcases 10 Nova Scotia islands through narrative portraits. Included are little-known outport Scaterie Island, billed as “Sable Island’s Rival”; the Avon River’s mysterious Boot Island, whose tides have claimed many a swimmer; the infamous Halifax Harbour islands; and more. Portraits of each island contain vivid descriptions and remarkable true stories as well as facts and legends detailing unique features about these unusual offshore sites.Features 20 illustrations by Peter Mitcham and a brand-new introduction from the author.
