Summary Argues that the popular conception of Nova Scotians as a pure, simple, idyllic people is false. This title shows how the province's tourism industry and cultural producers manipulated and refashioned the cultural identity of the region and its people to project traditional folk values. It examines how Nova Scotia's cultural history was rewritten.
