Washabuck book a hit with this historian too

9781927492901_FCIn a recent review of two books of Cape Breton history published in 2014, historian Ken Donovan says Vince MacLean’s These Were My People, Washabuck: An Anecdotal History, sets “a high standard for the history of small communities in Cape Breton.” (Nashwaak Review vol. 32-33, 2014)

“To his credit,” Donovan continues, “MacLean also places the history of Washabuck in the broader historical context of Cape Breton, Canadian and European history” and that a “sense of humanity and intimacy … comes across in the work.”
