Synopsis : The work of divers hands, this book is graceful and wonderfully lucid introduction to Prince Edward Island's Loyalist legacy. The attentive reader will also find, buried in these pages, a powerful essay on the iron will of the civilian refugees and disbanded soldiers who settled this province in the wake of the American Revolutionary War. One by one, we watch these first families and their sons and daughters push taproots deep into the rich red earth of the Bedeque Malpeque Isthmus, along the shores of the Hillsborough River and Orwell Bay, and finally to every corner of the Island. For all of us who trace our ancestry to these flinty men and women, indeed for everyone who believes in the lessons of man's common heritage, here is bright assurance that the crude violence, divided loyalties and individual heroism of the past have a real meaning for our own civilization.
