Legends of Prince Edward Island

SKU: AC0180

$10.95

Long isolated from their fellow countrymen by the Strait of Northumberland, the inhabitants of Prince Edward Island developed personal characteristics and a way of life peculiarly their own. These stories depict Islanders and that way of life before modern transportation linked the Island Province with the mainland.

The book contains fifty-nine stories set against the background of the Garden of the Gulf before the turn of the century. Some of the legends are written in the Island dialect and any persons and places in the areas are mentioned by name. Legends of Prince Edward Island is the result of years spent in collecting the now almost forgotten folklore of pioneer days.
