From the number of kilometers of coastline to the stories behind those weird place names (hello Ecum Secum) to profiles of Joe Howe and Alexander Keith, there is no book as comprehensive as the Nova Scotia Book of Everything. There is also no book more fun. Well-known Nova Scotians like Premier Rodney MacDonald weigh in on subjects like the five Nova Scotians he admires most; Ashley MacIssac tells us his five greatest Nova Scotians; Joel Plaskett gives up his favourite hangouts. The worst weather, Nova Scotia slang, the greatest crimes.it's all here! Whether you are a life long resident or visiting for the first time, there simply is no other book that delivers the goods. If you love Nova Scotia, you'll love the Nova Scotia Book of Everything.
