    1. This is an anthology of short stories as collected and edited by Caplan. It is highly entertaining and gives a great view into the thoughts and mores of different parts of the cultures that make up Cape Breton Island. I delighted in meeting the people highlighted in this book. In many of the stories retold in this anthology, I found the people and their friends to come to life on the pages. An easy read but if you like to put things in perspective on Cape Breton, this is a great book to read.
