    Jean Pierre Roma (French)

    This is the French translation of Jean Pierre Roma and the Company of the East of Isle-Saint Jean.

    In the 1700s, Jean Pierre Roma brought settlers to carve an international trading empire out of the virgin forests of Isle St. Jean — now known as Prince Edward Island. A successful entrepreneur in a thriving community, he saw all his accomplishments destroyed by privateers in 1745. Yet the story of Roma lives on as an inspiration and a cautionary tale to leaders and builders. This new edition of a monograph originally published in 1977 ensures that Roma is not forgotten.

  • Kens Corner Cover

    Ken’s Corner

    Neilly Reid finds herself swindled into pushing paper in a crooked public works department. She can handle the bureaucracy, a bit of white-collar crime, and the dim-witted local police, but things get dicey when she catches feelings for Jesse Root, the bag man for the small-town mob.

    From the Ken’s Corner parking lot, Jesse is plotting to win a seat in the provincial legislature. He needs Neilly by his side to sanitize his image while he juggles the demands of Mr. R, the mobster who runs the seedy underbelly of this postcard-perfect town. Shep, an ambitious beat cop, also sets his eyes on Neilly, suspecting she is the weak link he needs to bring down the whole operation.

    When their schemes threaten the one thing she cares about, Neilly sets a plan in motion that no one is going to like.

    Mi’kmaq Campfire Stories of Prince Edward Island

    The Mi’kmaq people have been here since the ice began to melt over this great land. They learned the medicines in nature to keep them healthy and they hunted the animals of the land and fished the waters of the sea. During the summer months they would gather in large community groups to celebrate, dance and sing. When the cold winds started to blow, they would go off in their own little family units to survive the winter. It was a hard life and it was always a struggle to make it through the long cold winters. One thing is certain, at night, by the campfire under the stars those families would tell stories, stories about who they were, where they came from, and all the lessons they needed to learn about life. Those stories passed on traditions, songs, language and the culture of the Mi’kmaq people.

    Here we present to you just a couple of those stories that were passed down from generation to generation. Hear them, learn from them, experience them, but most of all enjoy them!

  • Mud

    Mud, Sweat and Tears

    Mud, Sweat and Tears tells the story of Bud Ings’ adventures as a rural veterinarian in the 1950s. As one of Prince Edward Island’s first professionally trained veterinarians, Ings set up his practice in the eastern town of Souris before moving to Montague.

    Farms were rarely close at hand, however, and the sight of Bud Ings behind the wheel of his Volkswagen Bug became a familiar one on the Island’s highways and muddy back roads. And whether he was helping to deliver a calf, giving shots of penicillin to a pig, or putting down a beloved horse, Ings treated each animal- and each farmer- with dignity and respect.

    Ings’ memoir is a rich, often humorous account of his first decade as a vet, at time when there were few vacations, no modern tools of the trade, and no request too strange to attend to. It’s also the story of a past era, when PEI’s farms flourished and the animals were not only the backbone of the economy, but part of the family.

  • Ni'n na L'nu The Mi'kmaq of Prince Edward Island

    Ni’n na L’nu The Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island

    • Winner of APMA Best Atlantic-Published Book Award 
    • Winner of PEI Book Award for Non-fiction

    This lavishly-illustrated book tells a story through words and images that has never before been told, not in any single book. The focus is entirely on the Mi’kmaq of the Island, an island which for thousands of years has been known to the Mi’kmaq and their ancestors as Epekwitk. That name means “cradle on the sea” and no more poetic description of PEI has ever been penned. The story of the PEI Mi’kmaq is one of adaptation and perseverance across countless generations in the face of pervasive change. Today’s environment is far from what it was millennia ago. So too, the economy, society, lifestyle, language and religion of the people has witnessed some dramatic shifts. Nonetheless, despite all the changes, today’s Mi’kmaq feel deeply connected to the Island in its entirety and to their ancestors and the values they still share. This book tells those many stories, and communicates much more. While the book is a stand-alone publication, it is also a companion to a travelling exhibition of the same name.
