Boats, Books & Apples By Gordon Haliburton


1 in stock



Boats, Books & Apples is a portrait of E.D. Haliburton, who loved sailing and served in the Royal Navy in World War I, loved literature and read omnivorously (and wrote a great deal on his trusty typewriter) but whose greatest passion was for growing apples on his Annapolis Valley farm in Nova Scotia. From 1956 to 1970 he was a leading member of the Government of Nova Scotia.

The books shows him as he saw himself, with intimate glimpses of family life with a father described by his five sons. His personality and thinking is illustrated by selected correspondence, a sampling of his columns in the ¬†Halifax Chronicle-Herald, and a sketch of his participation in the politics of the apple industry in the 1940’s.
