A casual reference book.
Cape Breton is one of the most admired and celebrated islands in the world. There are many reason why this is so, not the least of which is its wealth of remarkable waterways. Most notable is the Bras d’Or Lake, a UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve, one of only sixteen in Canada. The Margaree – Lake Ainslie River System, another of Cape Breton’s treasures, was designated in 1998 as Nova Scotia’s first Canadian Heritage River. Aqua Waterways of Cape Breton celebrates these and many other of the island’s rivers, lakes and harbours. In this book you will discover much about Cape Breton’s waterways, including their physical features and how each of these waterways contributed to our natural and human history. You’ll learn practical facts, such as species of fish in each waterway and where marinas and beaches are located, and for the believers, some folklore and ‘fish stories’. Aqua is not a guide book. It is a ‘casual reference’, as useful and informative for outdoor enthusiasts as it is entertaining for armchair adventurers.
