Heritage Graveyards of Nova Scotia

Put your hand to the latch of the black iron lichgate; listen to it groan as it resists the intrusion. A haphazard tableau meets your eyes: thick gravestones, skinny ones, lurching, leaning, crumbling ones. Stones of soaring elegance or quiet humble footnotes. Works of art, all of them. History placed into context.  – Chapter 2 of Alyda’s Bluff
