Virtually surrounded by the sea, the ocean's salty waters pulse through Nova Scotia's historic veins. This new edition of Nova Scotia delves deeper than any other guide to reveal the best of this fascinating province both on and off the beaten track. It includes detailed sections on topics such as wildlife, history, culture, sights and cuisine covering the best B & Bs, wineries, beaches, remote villages and top spots to see moose and seals while cycling and walking. David Orkin lives in the province.

About the Author:

David Orkin is a freelance travel writer whose work appears regularly in leading publications such as The Independent, Wanderlust, Food & Travel  and Conde Nast Traveller. Shortly after completing the first edition of Nova Scotia, David and his family moved to the province. David can now enjoy life in Nova Scotia year round as an “insider”, but is also able to look at the province from the point-of-view of a visitor.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It is said that in the 1790s, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent (and father of QueenVictoria), was surprised embracing an attractive serving girl at the c1708 de Gannes-Cosby House at 477 George Street, now a private residence and the oldest documented wooden structure in Nova Scotia. Incidentally, the house is said to be haunted, but only by a quiet, well-mannered old lady who never bothers anyone.

During the same visit the duke attended a ball held at what later became known as the Bailey House. In the 1830s, the house’s owner, ‘Marm’ Bailey, was renowned for her ‘moose muffle soup’ (the muffle is the nose and the pendulous, overhangingupper lip of the moose). The Bailey House is now an elegant B&B (see above). Moose muffle soup is not on the breakfast menu.
