Discovered 35 years after the author's death in 1971, these fictional tales of Nova Scotia life in the early 1900s are truly an insight into a world of beauty, hardship, determination, humor and compassion. They might well have died along with the real characters, but fortunately the stories were recently resurrected from their moldy storage boxes and brought to life in print and now online.

About the Author
The author, E. E. "Kirk" Nichols, was born in Aspen, Nova Scotia, in 1900 and is buried there. Though he spent his adult life in the United States, Nova Scotia was always "home." He wrote these stories in the early 1940s while living in California, not knowing if they would ever be enjoyed by others. Today they offer a precious bit of Nova Scotia history and life along the St. Mary's River between Sherbrooke and Antigonish 100 years ago.

When I read your Dad's stories I think of Nova Scotia and all those people I love so much. The memories are so wonderful; I often think I am one lucky fellow. -- Lawrence Demmons, Michigan That story (Gammy) was lovely and so typical of pioneer life in Nova Scotia. It paints a picture of life in the era between 1847 and the early 1900s.The geography in the stories is always "right on," but the names give us "food for thought." -- Effie Pelley, Nova Scotia Oh my, the stories were so interesting. I loved the story of Gammy and it seemed so real, like it just happened yesterday. I wish he had written more!! -- Jean Langille, Nova Scotia
