For the 150th anniversary of Confederation, local historian
Leo Deveau decided to update, revise, and extend the Nova
Scotia Book of Days, originally published by Shirley Elliott in
1979. The result was 400 Years in 365 Days: a fun, trivia-
filled record of the people and communities of Nova Scotia
over the past 400 years.
Leo has assembled over one thousand entries reflecting
events in the histories of virtually every group and
settlement in the province, covering a range of interests
from politics and the military to sports and the arts. These
entries are highlighted with over 100 visuals, including full-
colour photos, paintings, drawings, and archival objects.
This informative, entertaining and illuminating volume is a
great reference book and an excellent gift for anyone
interested in Nova Scotia’s colourful past and lively present.
