The town of Wolfville and the village of Grand Pré, nestled side-by-side in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley, are home to some of North America's most fascinating history and culture--history and culture that are very much alive in the area today.
From peaceful, tree-lined streets to wind-swept marshes to awe-inspiring Cape Blomidon, the "Land of Evangeline" boasts a varied and beautiful landscape, justly celebrated by poets, artists, visitors and residents. In this lively book historian and author Brian Cuthbertson traces the evolution of the land and the people. He tells of the Acadian settlers who turned the marshlands into dykelands, the New England Planters who founded Wolfville, the determined Baptists who established Acadia University, and the shared growth of town and gown.
An unparalleled guide to this beautiful region, Wolfville & Grand Pré offers guided walking tours of present-day Wolfville and Grand Pré, with easy-to-use maps, and colour photos of the area's most significant features.

"...a beautifully designed guide to the region."
