Folklore of Nova Scotia
introduction by Ian Brodie
A new edition of a classic book on Nova Scotia's rich folklore traditions.
Mary Fraser was a pioneer in researching and recording the folklore of Cape Breton and eastern Nova Scotia, and this book is an invaluable source for the legends of rural Nova Scotians. Scottish, Acadian and Mi'qmaq traditions are all included.
Writes Ian Brodie in the introduction: "Folklore of Nova Scotia is a flawed, wonderful book -- or a wonderfully flawed book. As I read, I alternate between exasperation and delight: exasperation from its romanticism, delight from its embrace of the contemporary; exasperation from its prejudices, delight from its efforts at multiculturalism ... It is a documentary snapshot of a part of Nova Scotia's cultural history that was changing before the author's eyes."
