Christmas in the Maritimes

Elaine - Looks like this may very well be the Christmas book of the season for the Maritime books. Maxine MacDonald, Coles, Sydney Shopping Centre, Sydney, NS
Christmas in the Maritimes is a wonderful collection of both heart-warming and humorous stories from people all over the Maritimes.  The stories are full of memories of special holidays gone by and traditions that are continued among many families for generations.  This would make a wonderful gift for anyone on your list, but I think it would be especially wonderful for anyone who is now living away from the Maritimes.  The book is now in its third printing, congratulations Elaine!” Verna Murphy, columnist for The Reporter, Port Hawkesbury, NS


From its hilarious opening passage by Mary Morrison (BetteMacDonald to its poignant  farewell by author-editor Elaine Ingalls Hogg, When Canada Joined Cape Breton is a medley of memories collected over the past three years and compiled in the publication which was launched in Port Hawkesbury last Thursday to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Canso Causeway.

When Canada joined Cape Breton (Nimbus) winds its way across the decades much the way the design of the Canso Causeway seems to meander across the Strait of Canso.  In a series of nine chapters, Hogg allows her contributors to tell the story of this great undertaking from concept through construction to its memorable opening in August of 1954 to its 25th anniversary into the present and projecting another half-century into the future.  The single story unfolds through dozens of voices who have shared their memories of the Canso Causeway with Elaine Hogg. (Frank MacDonald in the Inverness Oran, April 5, 2005)
