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.

EMMA FITZGERALD was born in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa, and did most of her growing up in Vancouver, BC. She received a BFA in Visual Art at the University of British Columbia, spending her third year at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where she honed her drawing skills. She then completed her undergraduate and masters degrees in Architecture at Dalhousie University in Halifax. Emma's first book, the bestselling Hand Drawn Halifax, garnered attention in her chosen home city, winning the Atlantic Independent Booksellers' Choice award and the Coast's Best of Halifax award for Best Book in 2016. She lives in Halifax.
