In this history, Gordon M. Haliburton traces the rise and ebb of the Annapolis Valley community of Avonport from its earliest settlement through to today. From discussions of the formidable influences of industrialist L. E. Shaw and the Dominion Atlantic Railway to genealogical information and anecdotes, Haliburton gathers a mix of historical documentation and community oral history into an account that is as personal and entertaining as it is informative.
