Like many small towns in North America, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, experienced unimaginable change in the last century. For no one were these changes more dramatic than for those who were born in its opening decades—those who witnessed the transition that took place in society following the depression and the World Wars. In this book, Wolfville native Glen Hancock revisits the town of his boyhood in an attempt to catalogue the comings and goings of the pre-war community. From planting to harvest, church to commerce, civic pride to prejudice, Hancock offers a portrait of a community worth celebrating.
“With profound understanding, he has written of a small town as once it was, of the churches and other institutions in the community, and of the people who were the heart and soul of the place.” M. Allen Gibson, The Advertiser
