In Prince Edward Island: An Illustrated History, Douglas Baldwin takes the reader on a journey through the incidents and events that have shaped the province and its inhabitants throughout their development, from the first Aboriginal presence over 11,000 years ago, to the arrival of European settlers in the early eighteenth century, to the Charlottetown Conference of 1864, to the opening of the Confederation Bridge in 1997. Along the way, he peppers the narrative with stories of the many people and places that have played a role in making PEI both a tightly knit rural community and an immensely popular tourist destination.

Illustrated throughout with over one hundred historical photos and illustrations, Prince Edward Island: An Illustrated History is a must-read for anyone who has fallen in love with Canada's smallest province.
