Just as Hand Drawn Halifax was "a love letter to the city", Fitzgerald's new book takes readers on informal road trips along one of the most renowned parts of Canada.

As Emma Fitzgerald sketches, residents of these communities share their insights and histories. They appear in her whimsical drawings, which portray Nova Scotia's South Shore in every season. You will meet a fourth-generation female sail maker in Second Peninsula, learn the recipe for summertime rose vinegar, and discover how winter Bluenose dark rum is made in Lunenburg. You'll make a springtime visit to Birchtown's Black Loyalist Heritage Centre, and escape the cool autumn weather inside the Sipuke'l Mi'kmaq art gallery in Liverpool.

"Here's the sequel to author and artist Emma Fitzgerald's first book Hand Drawn Halifax ... This is yet another wonderful book, one that I can see myself picking up again in the future often to enjoy."

- Teoh Yi Chie Parka Blogs

"The immediacy of her sketches and endearing subject matter will appeal to any inquisitive armchair traveler or urban sketcher."

- Murray Dewhurst Urban Sketcher

"A great gift for anyone summering on Nova Scotia's South Shore. Certainly every bed-and-breakfast in the area should have these on their lending shelf."

- Marc Holmes Citizen Sketcher

"Through her vivid descriptions, one can almost smell the flowers as they sit on the windowsill and feel the rain on one's face. It makes me want to go to the places she describes to experience the things she has and feel them for myself."

- Bobbi Pike Atlantic Books Today

"FitzGerald's intimate, detailled lines remain packed full of sharp observation and casual charm."

- Tara Thorne, The Coast

"FitzGerald has carved out her own niche as an artist who draws cities and buildings and special places, as a chronicler of the history of communities, a teller of stories of lives spent in particular places."

- Lisa Cochrane, The Chronicle Herald

EMMA FITZGERALD was born in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa, and did most of her growing up in Vancouver, BC.
