"Just as Hand Drawn Halifax was "a love letter to the city", Fitzgerald's new book takes readers on informal road trips along one of the most renowned parts of Canada. As Emma sketches, residents of these communities share their insights and histories. They appear in her whimsical drawings that portray the South Shore through every season. Readers will meet a fourth-generation female sail maker in Second Peninsula, learn the recipes for summertime rose vinegar and winter Bluenose dark rum, make an autumn visit to Birchtown's Black Loyalist Heritage Centre with author and activist Desmond Cole, and escape the wintertime weather inside the Sipuke'l Mi'kmaq art gallery in Liverpool. Emma Fitzgerald was born in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa, and did most of her growing up in Vancouver, BC. She completed her undergraduate and masters degrees in Architecture at Dalhousie University in Halifax. She lives in Halifax"--Provided by publisher.
