  • Letters to Levi

    A Young Fisherman’s Mail

    Edited by Joan Stephenson     January 1991

    “These letters to Levi are a rare find. Not only are they a delight to read, they are also an invitation to search for further buried treasures of correspondence, particularly in long-settled communities where extended family patterns remain unbroken. The reading public, avid readers of local history, and a broad academic community will join to applaud Roseway for the publication of these letters by people who lived in Nova Scotia’s vital South Shore fishing communities.” –Dr. Ken MacKinnon, Professor of English, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, N.S.
