The newest addition to the Images of Our Past series, Sable Island in Black and White is a fascinating look at day-to-day life on Nova Scotia's most secluded outpost through a nineteenth century lens. Travel back in time to 1884 when author Jill Martin Bouteillier's great aunt, Trixie, was growing up on this isolated spit of sand 160 kilometres from the North American mainland. Trixie's father, Robert Jarvis (R. J.) Bouteillier, was Sable Island's superintendent, acting on behalf of the Nova Scotia government as lawmaker, doctor, dispenser of stores, and, most importantly, head of lifesaving.

This narrative history—accented by more than 100 black and white family photographs of the island's famous shipwrecks, wild horses, and visitors—tells the incredible true story of a stalwart group of ordinary people who called Sable Island home.
