The landscape of Prince Edward Island set Lucy Maud Montgomery's imagination on fire. This book explores the places where she grew up and explores the settings of her most famous works of fiction.
Green Gables, once the home of Montgomery's relatives, is now furnished and decorated based on descriptions in her most famous novel. Nearby is the author's childhood home -- her grandparents' farm -- and, at New London, her lovingly preserved birthplace. At Park Corner, visitors can enjoy one of her favourite places -- Silver Bush, the home of her Campbell cousins.
This book offers all new, beautiful photographs and historical images of the sites. Author Deirdre Kessler provides detailed background on these places, putting them in the context of rural life on Prince Edward Island a century ago.
