Big Cy and Other Characters: Pat MacAdam’s Cape Breton

Pat MacAdam is a born storyteller – so says Peter C. Newman in his foreword to this collection of stories about the larger-than-life characters and personalities who inhabit MacAdam’s witty essays.

Thirty-eight remarkable tales about remarkable characters from Cape Breton’s remarkable past: “Sea Wolf” Alex MacLean, Dan Petrie, Dann Gallivan, Micke MacIntyre, Moses coady, Finlay MacDonald, and, of course, “Big Cy” MacDonald of the title, are just a few of the characters from Pat MacAdam’s Cape Breton.
