Islands of New Brunswick free pdf This revised edition features the original illustrations by Peter Mitcham.Culled from her collectionsOffshore IslandsandParadise or Purgatory(1984), New Brunswick Islandsis part ecocritical exploration and part historical survey, as Mitcham explores the province s not-so-far-off islands in search of their unique stories. The result is an extraordinary collection of essays that illuminates the social and cultural histories behind New Brunswick s islands. Exposed are the complexities of island history, from the Aboriginal peoples of Indian Island to the generations of lighthouse keeping on Miscou, to the tragic quarantine history of Passamaquoddy s Hospital Island (Partridge Island). Industrious islands, from the once-lucrative quarries of Grindstone Island, to the still-flourishing fisheries of Grand Manan are also investigated, as well as the mysterious histories behind the now-uninhabited Heron and Shediac Islands, which have largely been reclaimed by nature."
