Rudy Maxa's World: Nova Scotia and Newfoundland
Rudy Maxa's World crosses the border to Canada. A touch of New England, a dash of Germany, here a British fort, there an Irish brogue, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are mixed-up worlds peopled by the descendants of hardy colonists who came to fish and trade fur. Lighthouses sweep the skies, the seas are littered with shipwrecks, whales cruise the coastline in the summer, storms rage in the winter, but the warmth of the hardy people who live in these two provinces makes the lonely landscape beautiful rather than forbidding.
From the charming fishing towns of Nova Scotia to the vast wilderness of Newfoundland, these are the last great open spaces of Eastern North America.
