56 stories from the Heart of Cape Breton – an Island worth reading.

An astonishing tribute to the tradition of Cape Breton Storytelling.Great Cape Breton Storytelling is a collection of 56 stories.  Included among the stories in the book are examples of the extraordinary diversity of Cape Breton Island. There are folk tales and life stories rooted in the experiences of such ethnic cultures as the Polish, Croatian, Pakistani, Czech, Ukrainian, Jewish, Black and Lebanese communities. There are stories from the island’s Mi’kmaq, Acadian and Scottish traditions. But most of the book is good old Cape Breton storytelling such as “But we went out after mackerel...!” and  "Fighting the Bear" and "Mine Rescue Team Memories" and “The Drunken Hens.”
