They Farmed Well They Farmed Well

The Dutch-Canadian Agricultural Community in Nova Scotia, 1945-1995

by Gerrits, G.H.

A son of Dutch immigrant farmer parents, the author traces the settlement of Dutch farmers in Nova Scotia after World War II and the contribution they made to this Maritime province. While local distinctions are always very much part of such a history, the general summation of the story of Dutch agriculturalists across the country does not change that much: they farmed well. Gerrits chose to feature the people who settled in one of the oldest Canadian farming districts.

Paperback, 190 pages, Illustrations, bibliography, maps.
